The Elvis Pancake
Customer recipe by Paul Davis
Added 77 months ago

The inspiration for this pancake is the famous sandwich supposedly eaten by Elvis Presley containing bacon banana and peanut butter. We like it for breakfast done on the griddle plate of our barbecue

First make the batter by sifting the flour and salt into a bowl. Form a well in the centre and add the egg yolks butter and milk. Whisk in the flour until a thick batter forms.

Meanwhile whisk the egg whites until stiff and then carefully fold them into the batter being careful not to knock out too much of the air.

Heat a small knob of butter in a frying pan and then pour in enough batter to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook for a few minutes until golden underneath and then flip and cook the other side.

When cooked spread the softened peanut butter over the pancake and arrange the bacon and banana slices as in the picture.

Drizzle either honey or maple syrup over the pancake depending on which you prefer, then place pan under a hot grill for a minute to warm the topping.

I have used an American style pancake mix, which uses beaten egg whites to make a lighter batter.
