Bacon pancakes

Bacon pancakes


The combination of sweet and salty is just delectable and these pancakes make good use of it! Salty bacon and sweet maple syrup go together beautifully but I do suggest serving these in moderation with some fresh fruit like pear, banana or blueberries. Enjoy!

  • 150g (1 cup) plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 250ml (1 cup) Vitasoy Calci-Plus soymilk*
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 rashers short cut bacon
  • 70g (1/2 cup) corn kernels (tinned, fresh or frozen)

* Any of the Vitasoy range of soymilks, ricemilks or oatmilks may be substituted (except the flavoured options).

  1. Place the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon into a large bowl and whisk together to combine.
  2. In a small jug, add the soymilk, oil and egg and whisk to combine. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix well. Set aside.
  3. Cook the bacon in a hot frying pan until crisp, about 5 minutes. Chop into small pieces and add to the batter along with the corn and stir gently to evenly distribute.
  4. Heat a crepe or non stick pan over medium heat and brush with a little vegetable oil. Ladle in some batter and allow to cook for 2 minutes until golden on the underside. Flip and cook for 1 minute more until cooked through. Keep warm and repeat with the remaining batter to make 6 pancakes. Serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit.
