Fluffy Pancakes with Maple Bacon Jam and Goat's Cheese

Category: Uncategorized


For the pancakes
135g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp caster sugar
130ml milk
1 egg
30g butter plus extra for cooking
For the toppings
120g pancetta lardons
3 tbsp maple syrup (you could also use honey or golden syrup)
2 tbsp onion chutney
125g soft goat's cheese


  1. Weigh out the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a large bowl.
  2. Pour the milk into a jug and add the egg. Melt the butter and add it to the jug, whisk together until combined.
  3. Add the eggs milk and butter to the flour mixture and use a whisk to beat it until you have a smooth batter. Set the batter aside to stand for a few mins while you make the bacon jam.
  4. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium high heat. Once hot, add the pancetta and fry until golden and crispy, 3-5 mins. Stir occasionally.
  5. Pour in the maple syrup and onion chutney, stir together and bring to the boil. Simmer for 2-3 mins, then remove from the heat.
  6. Break the goat's cheese up into chunks.
  7. Heat a knob of butter in another frying pan on medium high heat. Once the butter has melted, add a ladle of pancake batter. Once the top of the batter starts to bubble, turn it over and cook on the other side until golden brown, 2-4 mins.
  8. Remove the pancake to a plate and repeat for the rest of the pancake mixture. TIP: Add some more butter to the pan if it gets a bit dry.
  9. Reheat the maple bacon jam on medium heat.
  10. Serve the pancakes stacked on top of each other with the goats cheese and maple bacon jam on top and drizzled over. Enjoy!
