I made and published this bacon pancake with syrup for the first time back in 2007. This was on my at the time brand new blog on iWeb from Apple. This ceased to exist in 2012 or so. Then I migrated to WordPress to gerechtenweb.blog, the Dutch version of surprising.recipes. Meanwhile the article was completely outdated and I decided to remake it, both in Dutch and in English.
bacon pancake with syrup
- 300 gram flour
- 5 gram dry yeast
- 600 ml milk
- 1 egg
- 100 gram bacon
- butter for baking
- Heat the milk a bit until lukewarm. Then add the yeast and let it work already a bit.
- Make a well in the flour and add the egg.
- Slowly mix the egg with the flour and add the lukewarm milk. Mix everything well until you have a thick liquid dough. Then put it aside for 30 minutes.
- In the meanwhile, cut the bacon into pieces.
- Melt some butter in a pan. Spread some bacon strips over the bottom of the pan.
- Now pour a ladle of dough over the frying bacon.
- Put some additional pieces of bacon on top of the dough. Press them a bit into it.
- When the dough has set, you can turn the pancake around and fry it from the other side.
- Repeat until you have used all the dough and bacon strips. For me it was exactly 8 pancakes.

It is very long ago, but I still remember that I had this savory bacon pancake with syrup for the first time in a pub, after we ran a half marathon. It was the perfect gastronomic compensation for the physical exercise I had before. I loved it so much that I remade it at home. It was even the sixth recipe I posted at the time on my Dutch blog.
For some reason I am again in love with savory dishes at the moment. The last recipe I published were savory potato waffles with figs and plum compote. I guess this will also become an evergreen with many variations!
