    Ok, hear me out. Everytime I mention that I will cook this, I get weird looks and questions about my sanity. However, after tasting everyone is very impressed. Hence, I will share the secret receipe with you here.


    Needed are:


    Eggs
    Flour
    Milk
    A pinch of salt (optional)
    Bacon cut into strips
    A little oil for pan grease



    Method:

    Break the eggs into a bowl

    Whisk in flour until the mixture is too thick to whisk and sits in a lump.

    Add a little milk and whisk it through. At this stage you need to make the mixture smooth. Keep whisking and milking until your batter is slightly thicker than milk and has bubbles on the surface.
    [​IMG]

    This is where you add your pinch of salt to the batter. Your batter should contain no lumps, keep whisking until they are gone.

    Fry up some bacon in your lightly greased pan.

    When the bacon is almost the way you like it, cover it with a ladle of batter.

    When the top of you pancake bubbles and then sets, it is time to turn over the pancake. When the other side is of a nice colour, you are ready to serve.

    Cover with a little Golden Syrup or Brown Sugar and tuck in.

    Tips:

    *Pan heat is quite important to get proper pancakes. If the pan is too hot, cakes will burn before setting.
    *I suggest starting off your batch with a plain pancake to test the heat of the pan.


    If you have cooked pancakes before, this will be a piece of cake. If you haven't cooked pancakes before, don't worry. Ingredients are only worth 5 bucks and if you mess it up, it's not a big deal.

    What sort of egg/flour ratio are we looking at here?

    Do you think it would work with a standard pancake recipe?

    I'll update with some pics next time I cook these.


    This is partly grandma's recipe, so there are no measurements.

    1 egg is enough for about 5 to 6 thin pancakes. Whisk spoonfulls for fluor through untill it gets too thick to whisk, then thin it out again with milk.

    This will probably work with any pancake receipe, as long as it is a plain pancake receipe.

    lol i could see it working, especially after seeing americans violate bacon with maple syrup then anythings possible. Chicken and mushroom Crepes ftw! (err bacon could work in that mix aswell i guess)

    We used to have pancakes with bacon and gherkin slices cooked into them all the time - just make a normal pancake, put a few pieces of bacon and gherkin in the mix, cook and serve with golden syrup and cream. Sounds retarded, but its awesome.

    Maple Syrup and Bacon are always WIN! Dunno bout golden syrup though, little strong and doesn't taste too much of anything.

    +1 On that - maple syrup is much better with bacon. True canadian style!. IMO, works best if the bacon (lots and lots of it) is in the centre of the pancake. Roll it, like a crepe or something, drown it in Maple Syrup, then sprinkle some powdered sugar over it. Mmmm, so yummy :q

    Isn't this more of a crepe than a pancake beause of it's thinness?

    Also, bacon crepes could go down well. Now beer pancakes are fuckin' awesome. If you'se are lucky, I might even share my recipe!

    Gross, way to ruin pancakes, they should only be eaten with Lemon and Sugar or Maple Syrup.
