Fluffy “brunch” pancakes with bacon, egg and maple syrup
When you need to refuel your body with an easy and tasty brunch, try this recipe for fluffy pancakes with bacon, egg and maple syrup that you can make on your crepe maker.
TO MAKE THE PANCAKE BATTER
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and vanilla sugar.
Separate the whites from the yolks. In a different bowl, mix the 2 yolks together with the milk, then pour into the other bowl containing the dry ingredients. Mix until it becomes a smooth pancake batter.
Leave to rest for 15-30 mins.
In a bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Then, gently fold them into the pancake batter for incredibly fluffy pancakes.
COOKING YOUR PANCAKES ON THE CREPE MAKER
Set your electric crepe maker to 200°C. Grease the plate with a little vegetable oil. Then, add half a ladle of the batter and spread it out with the bottom of the ladle until the pancake reaches the desired size.
Cook for 1 minute on each side, flipping the pancake when the edges start to curl up and bubbles appear on the surface.
TO MAKE THE FILLING
Fry the egg in a very hot frying pan. Season with salt and pepper. Cook the bacon rashers for a few minutes in the frying pan.
Pile some pancakes up on a plate, cover with the egg and bacon, then drizzle everything with maple syrup. Enjoy whilst still hot for a delicious brunch!
Tip : Add some herbes de Provence and some finely chopped spring onions or grated cheese on top of the egg.
