Please know that pancakes are so much better from scratch than a mix, and really not that much more time or labor intensive. The method for these “man-cakes” are just as easy.
Start by cooking bacon, then crumbling (or dicing before cooking). Then combine wet ingredients (typically egg, butter, and milk but in this case, egg, butter, and beer) in one bowl, and dry in another (flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt). Cook pancakes as normal, in a small amount of the leftover bacon grease. Top with maple syrup (no Jemima here – the real stuff!) and enjoy the fluffy yet hearty breakfast!
