Lay out parchment paper over a cookie sheet and layout the
Bacon (6 slices)
1 at a time side by side.
Set the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and put the tray of bacon into the oven right away. Don’t wait for it to preheat!
Set the timer to 15 minutes and wait.
Once the timer goes off, remove the bacon from the oven and drizzle
Maple Syrup (1/4 cup)
on it and toss it around to coat it.
Put it back into the oven for another 8 minutes or so. Oven temperatures will vary, so keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t burn.
Remove it from the oven and place it on a plate to cool.
Once it’s cool, chop it up or rip it up by hand and set it aside if you can refrain from eating it all first!
In a small cup or bowl, add in the
La Lechera® Sweetened Condensed Milk (1/2 cup)
Milk (1 Tbsp)
to it 1 teaspoon at a time, and mix. Adjust it to the thickness you enjoy more.
Ground Cinnamon (1/4 tsp)
and mix and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the
Milk (1 cup)
La Lechera® Sweetened Condensed Milk (1/4 cup)
Unsalted Butter (3 Tbsp)
Vanilla Extract (2 Tbsp)
, 3 Tbsp of zest from
, mix well. If you see small bits, don’t worry it’s probably your butter semi-solidifying from the cold milk, just means you’ll have tiny pockets of delicious butter in the pancake!
In a small bowl, mix the
Baking Powder (1 Tbsp)
Salt (1 pinch)
All-Purpose Flour (1 1/2 cups)
together until combined and then add it to the liquid mixture and lightly mix the batter.
Set the stove to medium-low heat and add a tablespoon of oil. Let it come to temperature and then add a dollop of butter to melt.
Add in 1/4 cup of pancake batter into the pan. This batter is on the thicker side so when putting it in the frying pan, use the scoop to gently shape and spread it out to a less mountain like mound if you like thinner pancakes – and yes these do rise in the pan as well!
Let it cook for about 2 minutes until bubbles form. Then flip it to cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side.
Repeat steps for each pancake. If the pan is dry between cooking the pancake, add 1 tablespoon of oil and a bit of butter again.
Once all the pancakes are cooked, assemble a mountain for yourself, topped with chopped candied bacon and drizzle condense milk over top.
