I found this recipe in a magazine and found it just intriguing enough to try. I made just a few very small changes:

  • It called for regular cheddar and I used white.  
  • It called for 3 slices of bacon and I used 4.
  • It had you serving with just butter which we tried and then we added maple syrup which was a serious plus in our book.
  • It also said it would make 8 pancakes and I got 11.

1 cup flour
1 tablespoon cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup + 2 tablespoons buttermilk
1 LARGE egg
3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup grated white cheddar cheese
Maple Syrup

  • Preheat skillet and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Mix together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt until well blended.
  • Whisk together the egg and buttermilk.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry, whisking only until incorporated well.
  • Fold in bacon and cheese.
  • Using 1/4 cup measure scoop batter onto prepared skillet.
  • Turn when you see bubbles on the entire pancake surface.  If you wait for the bubbles you will need to only flip once and pancakes should be golden.
  • Cook until golden.
