About the bake

These delicious light fluffy pancakes served with crispy bacon and drizzled with maple syrup are a great breakfast treat or simply served for dinner as a savoury alternative to the traditional pancake enjoyed on Shrove Tuesday. Once you have mastered this recipe, breakfast will never be the same - you might also like to try making your own soft crumpets to smother with creamy butter.

  1. Step 1:

    Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, sugar and a pinch of salt into a large bowl.

  2. Step 2:

    Whisk the egg whites until stiff. Mix together the egg yolks, buttermilk and melted butter and whisk into the flour mixture until the batter is thick and smooth. Using a large metal spoon carefully fold the egg whites into the batter until evenly mixed.

  3. Step 3:

    Heat a large frying pan, preferably non-stick, and brush lightly with melted butter. Drop 2 or 3 large spoonfuls of batter into the pan to make pancakes about 10cm in diameter. When the bubbles appear, after about 3-4 minutes, carefully flip the pancakes over and cook on the other side until browned.

  4. Step 4:

    Serve in stacks topped with crispy bacon and maple syrup.
