Maple Bacon Pancakes
My husband LOVES bacon. If he could, he would add bacon to everything he eats. A couple of years ago, I even made him “flowers” made out of bacon. So anytime I make anything featuring bacon, he is all over it.
Pancakes just happen to be my boys’ favorite breakfast too. These 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 everyone who enjoys bacon, pancakes, and of course, bacon pancakes.
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 an amazing sweet and salty combination!

- Pancakes: Whisk you wet pancake ingredients until combined. Whisk in your dry ingredients and crumbled bacon. Let the batter stand for about 15 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 powdered sugar and then the heavy cream.
