Good morning!! Want to make it better?
How about some Ah-Mazing pancakes?! Both of my boys LOVED it …and who wouldn’t? Fluffy buttermilk pancakes made with pure maple syrup and crispy bacon. I’m not done… more crispy bacon on top and some creamy maple sauce!
I’ve told you many times that my husband LOVES bacon. You probably remember the “flowers” I made him a few years ago. So if I make anything featuring bacon, he is all over it.
I don’t think that I’ve met a person who doesn’t love bacon yet.
Pancakes just happen to be my boys’ favorite breakfast too. Scrumptious and fluffy pancakes that are cooked with crispy bacon and pure maple syrup inside and more bacon and maple sauce on top!
This breakfast was like heaven for them!
I would have never thought about putting maple syrup and bacon together until a few years ago. I was working at a restaurant and a lady ordered bacon with her breakfast. I saw her put maple syrup on her bacon and I just had to ask her about it. She looked at me like I was crazy for asking her and that everyone does that. Ha… nope, never seen that before. Although, I was intrigued and had to try it.
Turns out it’s a pretty tasty combination!
- 3 crumbled, crispy slices of bacon (save some grease from baking it)
- 1 cup of buttermilk
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3 tbs bacon grease (from cooking the bacon)
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup of flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 4 tbs of powder sugar
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup (hot)
- 1 tbs heavy cream
- Top off with some more crunchy bacon
- Save some bacon grease when you cook your bacon.
- Pancakes: Whisk you wet pancake ingredients until combined. Whisk in your dry ingredients and crumbled bacon. Let the batter stand for about 10 minutes. This is a good time to preheat your cooking pan and make the sauce.
- Cook the pancakes, in your preheated pan, for about a minute or two on each side. Check the pancakes by pressing lightly in the center, if its firm the pancakes are done.
- Sauce: Heat up the pure maple syrup first. Whisk in the powder sugar and then the heavy cream.
- Serve the pancakes with some crispy bacon on top and the maple sauce poured over it.
