Bourbon Bacon Pancakes
The only thing better than bacon in the morning is bacon paired with bourbon topped with maple syrup. For this recipe, I’ve taken pancakes and added these flavors to make something sensational.

I used a better bourbon this time, because I knew that there wouldn’t be a lot of cooking time and was worried that the flavor of a cheaper bourbon would be a little too much for breakfast time.
Let’s get started! When you put the dry ingredients in the bowl, stir them to combine then make a little well in the middle. Pour the wet ingredients into the well.
My well got a little wonky when I turned the bowl for the picture, but you get the gist.
This is the flat beater that you should use to combine. Lower the beater into the bowl and set it to 4. Blend for 1 minute. Pull the beater back out of the bowl and scrape the sides down to get all the non-combined ingredients mixed in. Lower the beater and set to 4 again, beating for another minute.
Your batter should be nice and smooth. At this point, you are ready to cook. I used pam on the pan and then topped with butter near the end for the flavor. I find that butter is too easy to burn. Most pancake recipes will tell you to use oil, which is fine too. I prefer Pam.
Cook for about 4 minutes on a medium heat on each side.
Pile the cakes on a plate, top with crumbled bacon, powdered sugar and maple syrup. So good!
