American Style Pancakes with Bacon and Blueberry's

Prep: 5 Minutes

Cook: 10 Minutes

Total: 15 Minutes

Category: breakfast

Skill: easy

Cuisine: American

Yield: Serves 4




  1. Fry or grill the streaky bacon until crisp and set aside.
  2. Add the flour, sugar, and baking powder to a bowl and mix.
  3. Measure the milk into a jug, add the egg, and vanilla, and beat with a fork until mixed thoroughly.
  4. Make a well in your flour bowl and slowly pour the wet ingredients into the bowl as you whisk. Whisk until the batter is smooth and lump free.
  5. Heat a small amount of butter in a medium sized frying pan.
  6. Add a small about of the batter to the pan. Keep your pancakes small (around 3-4 inches across) so you can stack a few up.
  7. Cook each pancake on a moderate heat until golden brown on the underside and then, the fun bit, flip the pancake over and cook the other side until golden.
  8. Stack 3 or 4 pancakes on a plate, add a couple of rashers of streaky bacon on top, and drizzle with maple syrup.
  9. Enjoy!


  • Scatter a few blueberry's on top if you're feeling a little guilty.

Hi Danny, thanks for pointing that out! We have no idea how, but appears we missed half of Shirley’s recipe off!?! Ooops!


Great recipe. I feel like you missed something here to make the mix thicker so it more closely resembles batter. Like flour and baking powder.
