Buttermilk Pancakes with Bacon – savoury & sweet

Carole's Chatter: Buttermilk Pancakes with Bacon – savoury & sweet

These Buttermilk Pancakes with Bacon  were my very first time cooking with buttermilk.  I turned to Martha S for some advice (but didn't follow it exactly – so what's new?).  But the results were definitely edible although not exactly pretty.

So you mix together in a bowl:

Firstly, 2 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, ½ teaspoon salt and 3 tablespoons of sugar

When that's mixed you add 2 large eggs (that have been lightly beaten – I did it just with a fork), 3 cups of buttermilk and 4 tablespoons of melted butter.  Don't overmix – it should look lumpy.

Make sure your pan is nice and hot (and put on the oven so you can keep the pancakes warm).  Oil the pan with a little neutral oil and some butter – do your pancakes one by one – using about ½ a cup of the mix at a time.  Flip them over then there are bubbles on the top and cook for another minute on the other side.

In the meantime I had opened my packet of bacon and found that it was actually bacon steaks rather than rashers – note to self- remember to put on glasses in the supermarket rather than being vain!  So that meant that it was difficult to make the end result very pretty.

I did do a garnish with cherries.
