  • Serves 4 People (10 pancakes)

Ingredients

  • PANCAKES
  • 8 rashers of bacon
  • 140g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 2 ripe bananas, 1 mashed, 1 thinly sliced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 25g butter, melted, plus a little extra
  • 125ml milk
  • MAPLE GIN SYRUP
  • Maple syrup
  • Miss Maple Gin Liqueur
  • Brown Sugar

Instructions

  1. Arrange the bacon on a baking tray lined baking paper. To get crispy bacon, place into a cold oven and turn onto 220°C. Cook for 12-15 mins, turn bacon over if needed and cook until the desired crispyness is achieved.
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and sugar with a pinch of salt. Make a well in the centre and add the mashed banana, eggs, butter and milk. Whisk to a smooth batter without any flour lumps.
  3. Heat a little butter in a large frying pan. Once sizzling, ladle in small dollops of the pancake batter, leaving a little space between each, as they will spread out. Put 2 or 3 slices of banana onto the surface of each pancake and cook for 2 mins over medium heat. When you see bubbles appear between the banana slices, flip the pancakes over and cook for 1 min more, until puffed up and golden.
  4. Transfer to a plate and keep warm with the bacon while you cook the rest.
  5. To make the maple gin syrup, mix the maple syrup and Miss Maple Gin Liqueur in a saucepan over low heat. We strongly believe more syrup is better, but make up as much as you want to drizzle over your pancakes. We recommend a 2:1 ratio of maple syrup to gin, but if you want a boozier punch, add a bit more gin! To thicken the syrup, gradually add brown sugar until you reach desired thickness of the syrup.
  6. Serve the pancakes with crispy bacon and maple gin syrup drizzled over the top.
