Bacon pancakes! My grandmother always used to serve me these delicious pancakes when I stayed over at hers. Here, I have used a slightly healthier version, omitting some of the butter, and swapped some of the plain flour for wholemeal.


  • 100 g flour (I used 50 g wholemeal and 50 g plain)
  • 250 ml skimmed milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1 1/2 tbsp melted butter (flora light perhaps?)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4-5 bacon rashers, trimmed and chopped
  • Fresh chives, snipped


  • STEP 1
    Mix together flour, milk, egg, butter and salt in a bowl and leave to "rest" for at least 15 minutes.
  • STEP 2
    Fry the bacon, and set aside. You wont need butter or oil.
  • STEP 3
    In the same pan, add a little butter and pour a ladleful of the pancake mixture, scatter over some bacon and snipped chives. Fry until it's got a nice light golden colour, and flip over. You should get about 4 medium pancaked out of this mix.
  • STEP 4
