Whilst I was mixing the batter for the pancakes, I remembered that some time ago, a recipe was posted on the Nigella website for American pancakes with waffer bacon and syrup. I've seen this combination - sweet pancakes, salty bacon and sweet syrup on various American food programes and have always been fascinated on how this combination could work.
There was no time like the present to try this, so I placed some bacon under the grill whilst I poured two tablespoons of mixture into a hot frying pan. I am pleased to say it all worked, and my American pancakes with bacon and golden syrup turned out to be lush:
