Carbe Diem (Carpe Diem)

What makes good food?  Does it require different flavorings with combinations of textures?  Maybe it’s all about nostalgia or experiences.  Hmmm….

Just starting this blog to record my experiments with FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD.

I went to a local fair last month and bought a shirt with the inscriptions “I regret nothing” and an image of cute pancakes.  I later visited the website and the name to order the shirt was called Carbe Diem.  Very Punny!

This recipe is a mixture of other recipes that I have been researching on Pinterest and an idea that I got from Adventure Time.  Jake had made some bacon pancakes and with a catchy song.

The fluffiness of Japanese pancakes and bacon is a great combo.  It’s a little sweet and salty a great combo.

Bacon Japanese pancakes

adapted from Tara’s multicultural table


1 1/2 cup flour

3 tablespoons sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoons baking powder

pinch of salt

3/4 milk

2 slices of bacon chopped


cut bacon then crisp them on frying pan, set aside for later.  Sift dry ingredients prior to mixing in order to get smoother batter.  In another bowl whisk eggs, vanilla, and milk until frothy.  Mix dry and wet ingredients together gently and let sit for 15 minutes to get thicker.  Arrange bacon on the griddle to approximate size of pancake then pour batter over bacon pieces.  I like to use a ladle for easy pouring. Sprinkle more bacon on top of pancake and wait for bubbles to form then flip.  Wait about 4 mins for each side on medium heat.

Add favorite adornment to bacon pancakes such as maple syrup, butter, clotted cream, fruits, or whipped cream.


Hope you enjoy my bacon pancakes 🙂
