I do love a good old breakfast. I much prefer going out for breakfast than any other meal. Its so warming and cosy, and I can easily accept getting out of bed if it means I’m having a truly scrumptious breakkie.
But what counts as a scrummy breakfast?
For me, there is a very thin line between being a greasy mess and a truly filling but delightful breakfast that hasn’t left you feeling dirty. And me no likey a dirty, greasy breakfast on a weekend morning!!
Especially if I’ve had to get out of bed for it!
Pancakes , Banana , Bacon and maple syrup. Doesn’t suddenly strike me as a winning combination. Quiet frankly, it sounds a little weird.
But stick with me because I promise it truly is remarkable and god damn tasty!!
Never tried it, you’re going to want to!!
Since I enjoyed this breakfast soo much in a trip to a local eatery me and A thoroughly enjoy, I thought I’d try and make it at home.
Money saving and all ay!
What you’ll need
175g Plain flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
25g Caster sugar
2 large eggs seperated
8 Rashers of smoked bacon
2 Banana’s mashed
Pop the flour, baking powder and caster sugar into a bowl and mix.
Add your egg yolks and milk into the bowl and mix into a smooth batter.
In a seperate, clean bowl, whisk your egg whites until they form soft peaks. Then carefully fold into your batter. Try and keep the volume in your batter as this will make them all fluffy!
Once you’ve made your batter, put to one side.
Grab your grill pan and line with foil. Lay out your bacon onto your grill pan and season with salt and pepper. I added a little maple syrup here to my bacon to give it a slightly sweet taste.
Grill your bacon and turn until cripsy. Leave under the grill at a low heat to keep warm until your ready to serve.
Heat a large frying pan until hot. Add your butter to the heat until melted and foamy.
Pour large spoonfuls of your batter into the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes. You’ll know when its time to flip your pancakes, as bubbles will form ontop of the batter. You won’t need to cook the other side for any longer than a minute.
I managed to get roughly 12 fluffy pancakes out of this batter.
Once I had made all my pancakes, I popped them all onto a baking tray and into the warm oven to keep hot until I was ready to serve.
In the same frying pan, add your mashed banana.
On a low heat stir until hot.
Once you have heated your mashed banana you are ready to stack and serve!!
Be sure to pour your syrup over and around your stack to make it extra sweet and tasty!!
We loved these pancakes so much. Especially for a Saturday brunch after a long week!!
I will certainly make these again, and found the beaten egg whites gave sooo much fluffiness. I didn’t expect them to come out as fluffy as they did. Truly scrumpious! I love this combination soo much, whenever and wherever we go for breakfast, I hunt the menu for this, and if it’s not, I die a little inside.If I could have this every morning, and maybe just maybe, it might be a new weekend ritual.
Ofcourse, I am excited to try some more combinations. Maybe a fruity one next time!!
Ps – sorry the pics aren’t thatttt great, we were just sooo eager to dig in!!
