Picture this: a sunny Sunday morning, an adventurous culinary spirit, and a craving for a classic American breakfast. That’s how I stumbled upon the Stacks of Joy: Bacon-Maple Blisscakes recipe. A delightful blend of sweet and savory that promises to kickstart your day with a satisfied smile.


This recipe serves up to 4 people, making it perfect for family breakfasts or brunch with friends. However, please note that it’s not suitable for those following vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, eggless cooking or low-sugar diets.


The ingredients list might seem simple – all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and soda, salt, buttermilk, eggs, unsalted butter, bacon and maple syrup – but each plays a crucial role in creating these fluffy buttermilk pancakes with crispy bacon bits. The flour provides structure while the sugar sweetens subtly. Baking powder and soda ensure fluffiness and the buttermilk lends tanginess balancing the sweetness of maple syrup drizzled pancakes. The eggs bind everything together while melted butter adds richness. And let’s not forget the star players – crispy bacon offering a savory crunch and pure maple syrup adding that irresistible sweetness.


To make these homemade bacon pancakes start by combining your dry ingredients in one bowl and wet ingredients in another before marrying them together into a smooth batter – remember not to overmix! Let this rest while you cook your bacon until it’s perfectly crispy; crumble this over your cooking pancakes for an added flavor punch. Once all your batter is used up (and you’ve got a stack of American style pancakes with bacon), warm up some maple syrup to drizzle over top – because what are pancakes without syrup?
