After five days of cereal or bananas for breakfast, eating these Honey Cornmeal Pancakes with Bacon and Honey Butter drizzle are enticing enough to wake up before the kids just to make them. With just a small amount of honey and some salty crispy bacon bits, this plate of food is the perfect beginning to a relaxing, lazy weekend.
In our household pancakes have become a weekend tradition. Flavors are chosen based on what is in the house, so with last night’s dinner still fresh in our minds [Crispy Colby Cornmeal Cakes], these pancakes seemed like an easy choice.
Let’s begin by dicing the bacon and cooking it until crisp…
Whisk the dry ingredients together
Then mix the wet ingredients
Cook them with 1/4 cup scoops, it will make 10 pancakes
Then enjoy with a nice tall glass of milk, or in my case a couple of cups of coffee.
