Makin Bacon Pancakes - Adventure Time Themed Dish for #ToonFood


Can you guess what my favorite cartoon is?

I'll give you a hint. I named my cats Finn and Marceline.

Adventure Time! I think it's one of the few shows that both adults AND kids can enjoy on the same level. It's smart and sweet while also being a whole lot of fun. So when the Nomicon blogger group decided to do a day of Toon Food, I knew what show I'd be representing!

But what to make? Jake's Perfect Sandwich (oh man I wanted to, but lobster soul is hard to come by!)? Princess Bubblegum Cupcakes? Treetrunk's Apple Pie?

Oh guys. Isn't it obvious?

Bacon Pancakes! And yes, I did sing this song the entire time. I amped it up with a splash of bourbon and some dark chocolate chips. And yeah, it's pretty bad ass. You could even say... it's Mathmatical!

Jake's Bacon Pancakes (Adventure Time)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled*
  • 1 tbsp apple pie spice
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tbsp bourbon
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

-In a small saucepan over medium heat, brown the butter--let it froth and boil until it turns a caramel color and smells nutty--then take off the heat and let it cool until lukewarm.

-Sift together the flour, apple pie spice, and baking powder.

-In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, milk, bourbon, and browned butter. Slowly add the dry ingredients, stirring constantly. Fold in the dark chocolate chips.

-Pour batter by the 1/3rd cupful onto a hot skillet. Cook each side for about three minutes, until golden brown. Serve with butter and maple syrup.

*for extra bacon flavor, leave the grease in the pan and cook your pancakes in it! I even subbed in a tablespoon of butter for a tablespoon of bacon grease.

  1. Hot cakes are my guilty pleasure, love them for dinner too =)

  2. Bacon makes EVERYTHING better! Been experimenting with things that may incorporate bacon jam, too. This may be a contender! :o)
