My kids (and my husband) love the Cartoon Network show, Adventure Time, and when they came across Jake’s fabulous Making Bacon Pancakes song they insisted we had to make our own bacon pancakes. Considering they also love bacon, I couldn’t resist and they were a hit. Strangely, they weren’t as bad as I thought they would be, but I would not recommend using crispy bacon. I think they would have been better if the bacon was a little softer. *grin*
If you’re looking to make your own bacon pancakes, it’s actually rather simple. Simply add about a cup of chopped up bacon to your pancake batter (I use the Bisquick recipe) and proceed as normal. However, if you want to get a little fancier, here are a couple other recipes you might consider using.
- Bacon Pancakes with Maple-Peanut Butter Syrup
- Bourbon, Apple and Bacon Pancakes
- Bacon and Red Chili Pancakes
- Beer and Bacon Mancakes
- Bacon Pancakes
And because I can’t be the only one with this song stuck in my head, here’s the wonderful song that started the craze in my house.
Bacon Pancakes is a song written by Rebecca Sugar, produced by composer Tim Kiefer, and sung by Jake in the episode “Burning Low.” The song is in the key of F♯ major, and the chords change to F♯, D♯m, B, C♯. (Source: Adventure Time Wiki). Here’s the lyrics to the song:
Jackie is a stay at home mom to two adventure loving boys; a wife to a husband who is very tolerant of her reading addiction; and the owner of Literary Escapism where she has actively promoted books since 2006. Since introducing her boys to the world of superheroes and Doctor Who, she has realized that she is a bigger geek than she knew. She loves exploring and finding new adventures to take her boys on, and it turns out they love checking out the unknown as well.
