Pancakes with Bacon and Maple Syrup
  • Rating:
  • Serves: 3-5
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Effort: easy



  • 150 g self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 eggs, beaten lightly
  • 150 ml milk
  • 10 rashers bacon


1. Sieve the flour into a mixing bowl, add the sugar and make a well in the centre. Whisk the egg and milk until blended and stir into the flour.

2. Heat a heavy-based frying pan and turn the heat down to medium low. Add 25g butter, and when melted, drop tablespoonfuls of the mixture into the pan and cook for about two minutes, until bubbles appear on the surface.

3. Turn the pancakes over and cook until they feel firm in the centre and the undersides are golden.

4. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. Serve straight from the pan with crisp bacon rashers and a good drizzle of maple syrup.
