These pancakes satisfy both the sweet and savoury senses.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 11⁄4 cup flour
  • 2 tbsps caster sugar
  • 1⁄2 tsp salt
  • vegetable oil, for shallow frying
  • 150g streaky bacon
  • 4 tbsps golden syrup
  • coarsely ground black pepper
  • fresh berries to serve


Step 1

Whisk together the eggs and milk. Place the flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl, make a well in the centre, pour in the liquid and beat with a 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.

Step 2

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 drizzle over the golden syrup and serve with a pat of butter, bacon and fresh berries.
