Recipe: American Style Pancakes with Bacon & Maple Syrup

 I've been making these pancakes the last few Sunday mornings and I thought that it was time to share them with you - which of course meant whipping up a fresh batch to photograph.. it wasn't hard to persuade me. I've recently been following this Jamie Oliver recipe (Thanks Jamie), and adding in all of the good toppings
So let's get cracking! What you'll need:
- 3 large Eggs
- 115g Plain Flour
- 1 Heaped Teaspoon of Baking Powder
- 140ml of Milk
- 1 Pinch of Salt
-Butter (for pancake frying & bacon crisping)
- Heaps of Smoked Bacon
- Maple Syrup
First things first you're gonna need to separate the eggs into two bowls: yolks in one, whites in the other. Add the flour, baking powder and milk to the yolks and mix until it's all smooth and battery. Mmm.
Whisk the whites with the salt until they form stiff peaks, and then fold them into your batter mixture until it's all smooth and light and all of the good things.
Right then, let's do the damn thing. Heat some butter in a non stick pan and get pouring. Personally I like to make them pretty small so I can stack them unnecessarily high because.. well.. it's fun. But y'know, you do you boo.  
Once it's looking firmish, give it a flip and when it's golden brown both sides, job's a goodun! Simply stack them high on a plate under a low heated grill or at the bottom of a warm oven to keep them all warm.
Whilst this is all happening, you can leave your bacon cooking in a pan so that it can get all crispy and good (I usually add a bit of butter to the bacon too because clearly I can't get enough of the stuff)
Once your batter is all used up on pancakes and your bacon is nice and crispy, it's time to stack'em high and cover the whole thing in maple syrup. YESPLEASE. Obviously you could always opt for some thick greek yoghurt and fruit to top your pancakes, but if I'm honest.. for me nothing beats crispy bacon in the mornings.

SO! Will you be making these pancakes? I'd love to know if you do! 
Make sure to tag me on twitter or instagram if you upload any photo's.. y'know.. because pancake sharing is caring.

Wishing you a happy and pancake filled Sunday!
