{Organic Spelt Pancakes} Nitrate Free Bacon drizzled with Canadian Maple Syrup

Bacon and maple syrup is a glorious marriage of flavours to delight your tastebuds. I must admit that I have only just recently tried this combination of sweet bacon goodness. My sister Kath lived in Canada some fifteen years ago and she has been a big fan of this breakfast treat since then. It’s one of those flavour pairings like salted caramel which is a perfect balance of sweet and salty.

My husband is the waffle and pancake man in our house. I make the toppings and he flips these delicious light and fluffy pancakes. YUM! When I make pancakes I mix everything together by feel to get the right consistency however this recipe has made me re-think my method. So without further ado here are some quick pics I took before we devoured every last crumb and drizzle.


serves 4-6


250g spelt flour

2 tsp baking powder

3 tbsp spoons sugar

1 tsp bicarb soda

pinch of salt

2 eggs

300ml milk

3-4 tbsp rice bran oil


8-12 rashers nitrate free bacon

organic maple syrup


(1) Place bacon rashers in a large cold frying pan and place on low heat. When the bacon starts to curl turn the rashers over. Continue to flip them until they are cooked evenly and to desired crispiness. Place in oven at 75-100°C.

(2) In a large mixing bowl combine the spelt flour, baking powder, bicarb soda, sugar and salt. Set aside.

(3) In a small bowl whisk the eggs, milk and oil into a smooth liquid. Gradually add the liquid to the dry ingredients constantly stirring so that you avoid getting lumps. Once all the ingredients are combined and without lumps, leave it to sit for 10 minutes. Allowing the mix to sit will give you light and fluffy pancakes.

(4) In a small hot fry pan, melt some butter and then add approx. 2 tablespoons of the pancake mixture into the pan. When the mixture is golden brown underneath, flip the pancake to cook the other side. Keep them warm in the oven until all are ready for serving.

(5) To serve: Stack the pancakes on a cake stand or pretty plate, pile the bacon on top of the stack and drizzle generously with maple syrup.

Tip: My choice of cookware is the Neoflam range with a non stick ceramic coating made of sand, stone and silica. EcolonTM coating is a healthy alternative to PTFE non-stick coatings. No nasty teflons in our house we kicked this to the curb many years ago. If you have not already heard teflon leaches toxic chemicals into the food and toxic fumes into the environment. The cookware is lightweight, easy to clean and cooks evenly. The fry pans are oven proof up to 250°C. It is time to spring clean your choice of cookware for your health and your family.

In all things beautiful,
