How to make pancakes with bacon and golden syrup


Serves: 2

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 eggs
  • 5 - 7 tbsp milk
  • 150g/5oz self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp Tate & Lyle caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Vegetable oil, for shallow frying
  • 150g pack sliced pancetta
  • 4 tbsp Lyle's Golden Syrup
  • Coarsely ground black pepper

METHOD

Whisk together the eggs and milk. Place the flour, sugar and salt in large bowl, make a well in the centre, pour in the liquid and mix beat with wooden spoon to make a smooth, thick batter. Set aside for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a non-stick frying pan until crisp and golden. Drain on kitchen paper.

Heat a little oil in a separate frying pan. Carefully drop large spoonfuls of the pancake mixture into the hot frying pan and cook for 2 minutes until crisp and golden.

Slide the pancakes onto serving plates and top with the bacon. Drizzle over the golden syrup, sprinkle with pepper and serve.

TIP: Pancetta is a smoked, streaky Italian bacon usually available sliced wafer-thin or roughly diced. If you can¹t get hold of it, use regular smoked streaky bacon.
