This is a good recipe. For simpler cooking, the bits of bacon and grated cheddar cheese also could be added to either our Buttermilk Pancake Mix or Country Wheat Pancake Mix. The subtle salty flavor of the bacon bits, together with the sweetness of our real maple syrup, makes a great tasting pancake.
6 strips of bacon, fried and crumbled into pieces
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoons salt
1 1/4 cup milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
- Combine the flours, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Mix with a fork.
- In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and melted butter. Stir in the cheese and bacon. Pour the milk and cheese mixture into the flour mixture and stir until just combined. (Some lumps will remain.)
- Heat a pan or griddle over medium-high heat. Coat it lightly with oil. When the griddle is hot, pour the batter onto the griddle in even circles. Cook until bubbles form and start to break in the batter. Flip and cook until done.
