During one of my many battles with Pinterest, I saw a picture of pancake wrapped bacon floating around. I didn't pin it, but I kept it in the back of my head for future reference. This past weekend I decided to try to replicate that sinful image. Bacon alone is good. Pancakes alone are good. Combined? It's everything you want them to be and more. Your sweetie will definitely appreciate them after a fun Valentine's Day evening. Have a wonderful night! xoxo
- 8 strips thick-cut bacon strips
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 cups low-fat buttermilk
- 4 tbsp. butter, melted and cooled
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Prepare pancake batter. In a large bowl beat eggs. Add buttermilk, butter and vanilla and mix well. Add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well until mostly smooth.
Heat a griddle over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp. butter and allow to melt. Spread 2-3 tbsp. of batter across the griddle so it is the same length as a piece of bacon. Place bacon on top of the batter and cover with an additional 2-3 tbsp. of pancake batter. Repeat with remaining batter and bacon strips.
Cook for 2-3 minutes or until bottom is lightly brown. Use a spatula to turn pancake over. Cook on the other side for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Serve immediately with syrup.
