More Than S'Mores: Bacon Pancake Dippers

7 June 2017

Want to know my 2 favourite things about pancakes? (Yes, I’m actually asking this question). First, the way my daughter Stella says pancakes…”panny cakes”. Adorable. I just can’t correct her! And second, when they are served with bacon. I find they go hand-in-hand. How’s about we jam bacon inside the pancake?! I saw this on Pinterest and just needed to test it out. It’s a super fun way to enjoy pancakes even when we are on the road camping. 

I found the secret to fluffy, thick pancakes: fresh baking powder, not sifting the flour, not over mixing the batter, and letting the batter sit for 15 minutes before using! 

Give these guys a try, whom ever you’re serving will be delighted!

Makes roughly 12-16

 Ingredients: 

1 cup of all-purpose flour

2 heaping teaspoons of baking powder

1/2 tsp of salt

2 tbsp of white sugar

1 egg, beaten

1 cup of 2% milk

1 tsp of vanilla

2 tbsp of vegetable oil

6-8 strips of bacon, cooked and cut into 2 pieces

Maple syrup to serve

 
Directions:


Step 1: First, fry up the bacon. Drain on paper towel, allow to cool enough to handle and cut the pieces into 2.

Step 2: Make the batter. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. In another bowl, beat 1 egg. Now add the milk, vanilla and vegetable oil. Whisk altogether. Slowly pour the wet into the dry ingredients. Mix to combine, not too much, the batter can still be a little lumpy. *Have patience and wait 15 minutes before making pancakes*.

Step 3: Clean out the frying pan you used to fry up the bacon and place over medium-low heat and add a wee bit of bacon fat or vegetable to the pan. I made mine on a non-stick frying pan so I didn’t need any extra grease, but you may need to!

Step 4: Working with 2 spoons, scoop out some batter and make strips of batter roughly 3 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. Now place 1/2 piece of bacon in the centre and lightly press down. Add a little batter on top of the bacon and cook. Wait until you see bubbles forming on the batter then flip. Cook for another few minutes and remove to a plate. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

Serve hot with maple syrup!

What our customers are saying

“Service after the sale is important to me and Stones proved that THAT is what they are all about. This past weekend we were camping in Antigonish and it torrentially rained on Saturday, and I noticed that there was water coming down the wall on the dinette slide. I called Stones immediately. About 3 minutes later Jonathan was at the door!” ~ Wayne and Arlene Cass
