[recipe servings=”4-6″ time=”25mins” difficulty=”Easy” description=”A fun breakfast!”]
2 cup of all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
2 egg, lightly beaten
2 3/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tbsp of butter
6 slices of bacon, sliced horizontally and then diced
In a small bowl, beat the eggs lightly
Now grab a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar and add the lightly beaten eggs and buttermilk however don’t pour it all in at the same time
I poured in half the eggs then mix and half the buttermilk then mix and so on, careful to not overmix! This will toughen the pancakes. You want to mix it until you see some small to medium lumps in the mixture
Once it’s all mixed, put your batter off to the side and let it sit for about 10 minutes. This will make thicken your mixture and this process will make the pancakes fluffier
While that sits, It’s now a good time to cook our bacon. Grab your bacon and slice or dice them, depending on your preference. A good tip is using a kitchen scissors makes cutting the uncooked bacon easier
In a medium pan, cook the bacon over medium-high heat and stir frequently until cooked. It should take roughly 10 minutes. Once cooked, remove the bacon and put it over paper towel to soak in the excess oil.
Wait a few minutes until bacon is cooked down. Once it is cool to touch we can add this in to our batter mixture and mix in lightly, we do not want to keep mixing our batter too much
In a medium or large pan, heat it up to medium heat and put in a tablespoon of butter. Take a 1/4 cup of the batter and pour it in the pan
Cook until bubbles form along the sides and flip. Cook until browned. I found this to be roughly 2 min a side seems good but will vary depending on your pan and stove.
Add a little bit of butter on top and pour on some maple syrup and enjoy!
Feel free to sing the song while you are making this! =)
