No, I don't think you NEED a recipe for a pancake, it's flour, egg, milk, cooked and slathered in whatever makes you happy. I just do them a little differently when it's just me here and I want a little treat. The days where I'm chased away from a quiet read by televisions and feel lonely for someone to just chat to about nothing in particular, this is what I make, just for me, on those types of days... go on, we all have them, trust me, if you make this, you'll have a little smile and a new start to the day.
DRIVEBY RECIPE: TRACY'S BACON APPLE PANCAKE
WITH POWDERED SUGAR AND QUEBEC MAPLE SYRUP
Bacon, cut into tiny pieces, I use 2 pieces
1/2 apple, peeled and chopped small
1/2 cup all purpose flour
pinch of salt
1 Tb sugar
enough milk to take batter to 1 1/3 cup (10 oz) of batter
METHOD AND PLAY BY PLAY PICS
Cut bacon up small and drop in a cold frying pan, add water to coat the bottom of the pan, thinly. Turn on to medium high and cook till water evaporates and bacon crisps, drop in apples and fry around a bit, just a bit, we don't want them turned to babyfood. Add a pat of butter and shush it around to a smooth layer in the pan. Drizzle batter over, thinly but enough to cover, leave it, do NOT touch or shake, don't touch it!! when it looks dry around the edge, slide a spatula under and flip it, one solid motion. you can do it! Fry the second side a minute or so, till it's brown under there then flip back to first side. Transfer to plate and add a little powdered sugar, fold in half, dust with a little more powdered sugar and fold into quarters. Pour a little maple syrup over and sit quietly and eat it, all of it. :) Enjoy. There is enough batter to make another, plain one OR you can repeat and make a second apple bacon. Go on, make yourself one.
Make the batter and set aside. Add bacon and water to pan and fry till crispy, add chopped apple.
Fry it around a bit, add a pat of butter and then pour batter over, carefully and evenly
Leave it, do not shush it around, just leave it, when it's brown and set, flip it
Oh, flip it back again when the second side is cooked, just for a second, Transfer to a plate, sugar and flip, sugar and flip.
Drizzle a little maple syrup over it... yeah, then eat it, quietly, with no one anywhere near you
