blueberries, to serve 

maple syrup, to serve 


  • Preheat the grill to medium-high. 
  • Tip the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and sugar into a mixing bowl and whisk together to combine. Crack the eggs into a jug with the milk and melted butter. Mix to combine. 
  • Make a well in the bowl of flour and slowly pour in the milk mixture, whisking constantly as you pour, until smooth with no lumps. 
  • Arrange the bacon on a baking tray and cook under the grill until golden and crispy. 
  • Place a large non-stick frying pan and melt a little more butter over a medium-low heat. Add 3 large tablespoonfuls to the pan and cook for 1-2 mins, until bubbles start to appear. Flip and cook for another min. Repeat with the remaining batter.
