Everyone knows that a way to a man’s heart is through food, so what better way to show your Dad how special he is this Father’s Day than with a delicious breakfast in bed!
TAFE NSW Tourism and Hospitality Teacher, Robyn Ward, said this indulgent breakfast recipe was the perfect way to kick-start a day of spoiling your Dad.
“Everyone loves pancakes, but the addition of crispy bacon and maple syrup is the icing on the cake,” Ms Ward said.
“The best part about this recipe is that it’s fun to make and, something that the entire family can do together. Most importantly – it tastes wickedly good!”
Truck-stop buttermilk pancakes
1 1/2 cups milk
6 tablespoons melted butter
5 cups buttermilk
5 cups plain flour
5 teaspoons baking powder
4 tablespoons sugar
6-8 rashers of bacon
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, butter and buttermilk. Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and stir into the wet ingredients until just blended. Adjust the thickness of the batter to your liking by adding more buttermilk or more flour.
Heat a large frypan over a medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Pour ¼ of a cup of batter at a time into the pan and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula and cook until browned on the other side. Continue with remaining batter.
Serve in a stack with crispy bacon and a drizzle of maple syrup.
