Recipe Bacon Pancakes

Bacon Pancakes



250g all-purpose flour

65g sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground cardamom 

2 tsp vanilla sugar

800ml milk

6 eggs

100ml beer (any pale lager, such as Heineken, Budweiser, Tuborg Pilsner)

100g melted butter

150g bacon, fried on a pan and cut into smaller pieces

3 tbsp melted bacon fat


1. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Pour the milk into the bowl and stir until all lumps are gone. Add two eggs at a time, and mix well. Add the beer to the batter and stir once more. Finally, add the melted butter, bacon fat, and bacon pieces and mix. 

2. Heat a small non-stick pan with a little butter over medium-high heat. 

3. Pour enough batter on the pan to cover the surface with a thin layer but without having to tilt the pan to distribute. Turn the pancake once the bottom side is golden brown. Bake the pancake on the second side. Repeat with the remaining batter.  

4. Serve the pancakes with maple syrup, whipped cream, and bananas.
