Jacka's Bacon Pancakes With Maple Bourbon Butter S
butter, melted, slightly cool
eggs, lightly beaten
For the pancakes: Heat a griddle to medium-high heat. Fry the bacon until crispy and then transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
Lower the heat to medium and remove any excess bacon fat. You want there to be a thin layer for the pancakes.
Chop the bacon into chunks and separate the crumbs into two piles.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar., whisking together to thoroughly combine.
Add the buttermilk, butter, half of the bacon and eggs and whisk together until combined but still slightly lumpy.
Drop spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook on each side until it bubbles, then flip over. Transfer to a warm oven while finishing the rest.
For the syrup: In a small saucepan, combine the bourbon and maple syrup, whisking together over medium heat until thoroughly combined and hot.
Cook until reduced slightly about 5 minutes, then whisk the butter in a tablespoon at a time until fully incorporated.
Serve a stack of pancakes in syrup and sprinkled with the reserved bacon crumbs to serve.
