Recipe – Bourbon Bacon Pancakes

First of all, Happy Pancake Day! One of the best days of the year and the perfect excuse for a night of indulgence!

Whilst I am fan of the traditional pancake toppings, I also like to experiment a bit and these bad boys are incredible…crispy bacon, maple syrup and bourbon make a pretty perfect combination.

We always have bourbon in the house for an impromptu cocktail but this recipe sees it mixed with sweet maple syrup to create a grown-up drizzle for your pancakes…and quite frankly any recipe is better with bacon!

However, this is not only topped with bacon but there is also bacon in the pancake mix too – bacon squared!

I used my regular old pancake mix of 110g of plain flour, 2 eggs and half a pint of milk whisked together until smooth then left to chill in the fridge for about half an hour or so.

I fried the streaky bacon until crispy and crumbled a couple of rashers into the pancake mix.pc2pc1

Of course, the chef gets an extra nibble too!

For the drizzle, I tipped about 100ml of maple syrup into a small pan, and added half a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a good glug of bourbon.

After frying the pancake until golden, top with some bacon rashers, drizzle over the maple, vanilla and bourbon glaze and tuck in!

As I type, Ian is frying up round two but these would be lovely one weekend for brunch too.

How did you have your pancakes this year? x

About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
