American Pancakes with Crispy bacon, Maple Syrup & Blueberries


Sieve the flour, caster sugar, salt and baking powder into a bowl and then mix all remaining ingredients together until you have a smooth batter.

Place the bacon on to a baking paper lined tray and bake in the oven. 

Whilst the bacon is cooking start to fry your pancakes. 

Heat a medium frying pan and add a small amount of oil, pour an even coating of batter into the pan and leave until you start to see bubbles forming on the surface. 

At this point sprinkle over a few blueberries and flip to finish the cooking.

Repeat the process until all pancakes are cooked.
