Bacon Buttermilk Pancakes

Try your hand at these easy gourmet pancakes. Add chocolate chips for a sweet and savoury flavour.


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 2 pinches (generous) salt

  • 3 eggs

  • 3 cups buttermilk

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled (plus more for pan if needed)

  • 1 tbsp vanilla

  • crumbled cooked bacon

  • maple syrup, topping


  • Mix flour in a large bowl with sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk eggs with buttermilk, butter and vanilla. Slowly pour and whisk into flour mixture. A few lumps are OK; don’t overmix.

  • Set large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add a little butter. When hot, pour a 1/4 cup batter into pan. Sprinkle tops with crumbled bacon.

  • Cook until pancake is bubbling on top and golden on underside, 2 to 5 min. Flip and continue to cook until golden on both sides, 2 to 4 min. Do not press. When pancakes are done, serve with fruit salad and maple syrup.
