Personally, the american style pancakes are my favourite, and my all time favourite topping has to be crispy bacon and maple syrup! If you've never tried it and think it sounds disgusting, trust me, don't knock it til you've tried it, its an amazing combination!

In order to make these kinds of pancakes you will need:
  • 135g of plain flour
  • 1teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of salt
  • 2 table spoons of caster sugar
  • 130ml of milk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Maple syrup
  • 2 rashers of bacon 
Place your bacon into a pan or grill to begin cooking so it has plenty time to get nice and crispy if you like it that way.

Then, sift your flour into a bowl, and add your baking powder, salt and caster sugar.

In a measuring jug, measure out your milk and whisk in your egg, before adding to your flour mixture.

Using a whisk or fork, mix together the whole mixture until there are no lumps.

Add your olive oil to a non-stick pan on a medium-high heat. When the pan is warm, begin to add your first pancake. It will seem really thick at first but thats the secret to a really delicious american style pancake!

When complete add your favorite toppings and enjoy! I've also found adding strawberries to this recipie is also really delicious and another contrasting flavour, however, unfortunatley I didn't have any in the house today.

However you like your pancakes, I hope you're having a wonderful pancake day!
