Ingredients

  • 6 rashers of streaky bacon
  • 2 large British Lion eggs, separated
  • 75ml/3floz milk
  • 100g/4oz self raising flour
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 75g/3oz blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil for frying
  • fried eggs to serve

Method

  1. Cook the bacon under a hot grill for 5 mins, turning once until crisp. Leave to cool, then chop. Place the egg yolks and milk in a large bowl, sift over the flour, caster sugar and salt and mix well. Whisk the egg whites in a clean grease-free bowl until they form soft peaks. Fold into the flour mixture. Gently stir in the chopped bacon and blue cheese.
  2. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan. Drop two to three large spoonfuls of the pancake mixture into the hot pan and cook for 2 mins until crisp and golden. Turn over and cook for a further 1 min until golden. Transfer to a clean tea towel to keep warm. Cook the remaining batter in the same way to make 8 pancakes.
  3. To serve, heap the warm pancakes onto a plate, top with a fried egg if liked.
