Recipe: Avocado and Bacon Brunch Pancakes

Do brunch justice with this tasty avocado and bacon pancakes recipe. Ideal for pancake day, or in fact any day as far as we're concerned! 



  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • Sea salt
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 1 corn on the cob
  • 20g feta cheese
  • 8 rashers smoked streaky bacon
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 limes
  • 6 tablespoons natural yoghurt
  • Hot chilli sauce
  • A few sprigs of fresh coriander


  1. Place the flour, milk and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Crack in the egg and whisk well to a smooth batter. Carefully slice the corn kernels off the cob, and then stir into the batter. Crumble in the feta and give it a final stir.
  2. Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat, then add the bacon and fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until crisp, turning halfway. Meanwhile, halve and destone the avocado. Slice each half into four wedges and peel away the skin. Season with salt and pepper, grate over a little lime zest and squeeze some lime juice on top.
  3. Transfer the bacon to a plate, and then return the pan to a medium heat. Once hot, use a ladle to spoon the batter into the pan – each ladleful will make 1 pancake, so you can make about 2 at a time. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until little bubbles start to show on the top, then use a fish slice to flip them over and cook for a further 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden.
  4. Divide the pancakes between 4 plates, top each with 2 pieces of avocado and 2 rashers of bacon. Drizzle over a little yoghurt and chilli sauce, grate over a little more lime zest and pick a few coriander leaves on top.
