Q: What do you call a man who’s gotten into a fight with his cat?
Let me tell you something. Claude, the cat and you are going to love these pancakes.
Chocolate and bacon.
I made an extra piece of candied bacon to garnish the pancakes along with some additional chocolate chips. Looks great, tastes better.
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups buttermilk
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 oz semisweet chocolate chips
Candied bacon (recipe follows), finely chopped
1. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a mixing bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk and melted butter, then add the mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined.
3. Stir chocolate chips and candied bacon into batter.
4. Heat a griddle over medium-high heat and lightly grease.
5. Ladle the batter, 2 tablespoons at a time, onto the hot griddle and cook until small bubbles appear on the top. Flip and cook until other side is golden brown, about 2 – 3 minutes per side. Remove pancakes to a warm oven while cooking up the rest of the batter.
6. Serve pancakes with butter and maple syrup or dust with confectioners’sugar.

This new song from London-based Iain Woods definitely appeals to my love of the stranger stuff. It’s from his debut album ‘Psychologist’.
