Katrina's Inspiration"I began experimenting with bacon + chocolate at the tender age of 6, while eating chocolate chip pancakes drenched in Aunt Jemima® syrup, as children often do. Beside my chocolate-laden cakes laid 3 strips of sizzlin' bacon, just barely touching a sweet pool of maple syrup...From there, it was just a matter of time…and what began as a love of salt and sweet quickly unraveled into an obsession. A pancake mix that includes addictive bites of bacon and chocolate, circling the story back to its inception at my childhood breakfast plate."
- 1. Pre-heat oven to 200 ° F to keep the finished pancakes warm.
- 2. Heat a griddle to 350-375 ° F. Since every griddle is calibrated differently, it is best to do a test to ensure the perfect temperature.
- 3. Drop a few beads of water on the griddle. The water should "skate" across the top-if the beads jump, the griddle is too hot.
- 4. Place 2 cups pancake mix in a bowl; create a well in the center of the mix with your hands.
- 5. In a separate bowl, mix 2 egg whites with 3 cups buttermilk (if you like a thicker pancake, reduce buttermilk to 2 ½ cups). If you don't have buttermilk on hand, you can easily make you own by combining 1 tbsp lemon juice for every 1 cup of milk.
- 6. In a third bowl, mix 2 egg yolks with 4 tbsp melted butter.
- 7. Combine wet mixtures and pour ingredients into the center well of the pancake mix.
- 8. Whisk for 25 seconds maximum. Do not over mix; the batter should have lumps.
- 9. Using a pastry brush, grease the griddle with a little bacon fat or butter.
- 10. Delicately ladle ¼ cup portions of the batter on the griddle, spaced about 2 inches apart. Take care not to burst any of the bubbles in the batter while ladling.
- 11. Cook the pancakes until the batter bubbles have risen to the surface of the pancake and edges are slightly dry-about 2 minutes.
- 12. Scatter the bacon chocolate chips evenly across the top of the pancakes or wait until the pancakes are cooked and layer chips between pancakes for a melted bacon chocolate bite.
- 13. Flip each pancake and cookie for about 45 seconds, making sure not to burn the chocolate. Repeat until all the batter is depleted.
- Keep finished pancakes warm in the pre-heated oven in an oven-safe dish with a cloth towel layered between each pancake. Serve pancakes with generous amounts of real maple syrup.
Yields: Each batch yields approximately 8, 5–inch pancakes. 2 batches per container.
