Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups buttermilk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs, at room temperature

6 slices cooked bacon, chopped

1 ripe banana, mashed

Rendered bacon fat reserved in pan, if desired, or butter

Butter and maple syrup, for serving

Directions

  1. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Set aside. Mix the buttermilk, vanilla extract and eggs in another bowl until thoroughly combined. Stir in the bacon and banana. Fold in the dry ingredients.
  2. Preheat a large pan over medium-high heat. Add a little bacon fat or butter and allow to heat and melt. Add about 1/2 cup of the batter for each pancake. Allow the pancake to cook until it starts to bubble on top and gets golden brown around the edges, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook for another minute. Remove to a platter. Repeat with the remaining batter. Top with butter and maple syrup.
