Bacon Strip Pancakes
(4 servings) Printable Version
These are the original instructions from a 1962 magazine ad for Aunt Jemima pancake mix:
"Just about the best breakfast that ever greeted a hungry family! And it's as easy as this: Shake up Aunt Jemima batter according to package directions. Place cooked bacon strips on the griddle and pour batter over each strip. Bake 'em golden brown on both sides. Couldn't be easier - couldn't taste better! How about Aunt Jemima Bacon Strip Pancakes at your house tomorrow!"
For Best Results:
Prepare the pancake batter with slightly less water or milk than instructed. A thicker batter will help prevent the pancakes from flowing into each other.
Set your griddle to medium-high.
Fry the bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon from the griddle and lay slices on stacked paper towels to remove excess grease (and to get more crispy).
Carefully, wipe down the griddle with wadded paper towels, leaving only a very thin layer of grease to cook the pancakes.
Return the cooked bacon to the griddle with at least two inches of space on both sides of the slices. (You'll probably have to work in two batches.)
Slowly pour batter over each bacon slice. After one minute, check the bottom side of the pancakes. Once browned, flip the pancakes and cook the other side to golden brown.
Serve immediately with softened butter and warm maple syrup.
This is a classic recipe that appeared in magazine ads for Aunt Jemima pancake mix in and around 1962.

Saw the picture shared elsewhere so I looked for the recipe and found your site. Brilliant idea, very easy to execute too. I use a homemade mix to start and it was fantastic. I'd make this again for sure. Thanks for sharing!

It was alright I suppose. Tasted exactly like you would think it would.

I use Fiber One Pancake Mix and always sift the mix first. It calls for adding water but I substitute with light coconut milk and it makes the batter taste better. I also use Turkey BACON which is healthier and holds its crispness. This is great for snacking also. Pancakes come out AWESOME without the syrup. Also... I make double the recipe and leftovers I can put in toaster for when I need a snack.

I'm going to see what happens if I lay the nearly crisped bacon on top of the pancakes shortly before flipping them while the batter is still somewhat uncooked on the top but fully cooked on the bottom to see if this helps maintain the crispness of the bacon. I'm hoping that by finishing the cooking with the bacon exposed to the direct heat of the griddle it will come out just right. I'll message back if I'm successful.

It's okay. Good, but not really super good. Guess it depends on who makes it.

Great find. I love pancakes and I love bacon. I do agree with the comment about it being better if the bacon stayed crisper, but the flavor was amazing. Thanks for sharing this one.

In the words of Epic Meal Time, "Add bacon strips, add bacon strips, add bacon strips, " etc. The world needs more bacon.

The bacon doesn't stay crisp, but you can't argue with amazing flavor.
