I did an experiment with instant pancake batter and bacon strips today! A couple of weeks ago, I saw a random post on Tumblr about a person making Maple Bacon Pancake. It's a pancake, with cut bacon strips in it, coated in deliciously sticky maple syrup. It looked very very appealing and mouth-watery. I mean, come on, who doesn't love pancakes and bacon strips? So, I decided to give it a shot, even though I'm lacking of maple syrup.

Started by taking out a couple strips of bacon and cut them to small squares. Take out your awesome non-stick frying pan and fry them bacons until they're crispy and brownish red in color. Before I fried the bacons, I applied some margarin to the frying pan, just for the sake of making the bacons a bit saltier. The bacons will shrink when they are fried, so you might want to use three or four bacon strips incase if you think the bacon is too few.
When the bacons are perfectly fried, it's time to do make the pancake batter. I used an instant pancake batter I bought at the mini market a long time ago, so I just had to add some water to the powdered mixture and voila! your pancake batter is ready.

When the non-stick frying pan is well-heated, take a scoop of the pancake batter and pour them to the surface of the pan. Sprinkle some fried bacon strips on top of the batter and let them cook. When the bottom of the pancake has turned brown, you can flip the pancake over and let the surface cooked as well. And then, ta-da, your very own Bacon Pancake is ready to be engulfed! Don't forget to pour a generous amount of maple syrup onto the perfectly cooked pancakes to make it tasted superb.
Unfortunately, I didn't have any maple syrup with me, so I merely succeed at making Bacon Pancake, not Maple Bacon Pancake. I took a bite of my masterpiece and it tasted fine. It tasted like how pancakes should tasted like, but a bit salty because of the bacon. I bet the sweet and sugary maple syrup would make this dish has a balanced flavor. I'm gonna have to grab myself a bottle of that Canadian syrup when I get the chance.
