Bacon and cheese baked pancakes
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
I have doubled my recipe - both Ingrid and I have used the same batter mix but I have done mine in a large rectangle dish. This serves 3-4 people
Serves: 3-4
What you need
  • 25 grams butter (for greasing the pan)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup grated tasty cheese
  • 8 rashers of bacon
  • 4 tomatoes quartered or 12 cherry tomatoes halved
  • Chopped parsley to garnish
How to make
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees
  2. Lightly beat the eggs and milk until combined.
  3. Add sifted flour and salt.
  4. Lightly mix to combine - don't over mix and don't worry about a few small lumps.
  5. Grease the baking dish (cast iron works best) with the butter and put into the oven for about 3 minutes.
  6. Pour the batter into the hot dish, add the grated cheese and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  7. Dont peek!
  8. Whilst the pancake is cooking fry the bacon and tomatoes in the same frying pan. If its a non-stick pan you wont need any butter or oil.
  9. When the pancake is brown and puffy at the sides its ready.
  10. Serve in the baking dish topped with crispy bacon, sweet, juicy tomatoes and parsley to garnish.
  11. Chilli sauce, tomato sauce or a chutney would be the perfect match.
