It’s only day 2 of Vegan Mofo and this day has already arrived. Bacon Pancakes day! Maybe one of the most well known foods in the Land of Ooo. Why is it so well known? Well, probably because Jake sings the world’s catchiest song about bacon pancakes ever. (Don’t worry, it’s not really an hour. The song is only 10 seconds long.)
Despite having this song stuck in my head on and off since I saw the episode Burning Low I still hadn’t gotten down to business and made these darn things. Until today! Yup. I made Jake’s famous bacon pancakes!
I used the PPK Puffy Pillow Pancakes recipe subbing club soda for the water because this makes them extra fluffy and Lightlife Smart Bacon. I cooked the bacon first and then placed one piece of bacon into the middle of each pancake right before they were ready to be flipped.
Smart Bacon was super easy to use, but I know homemade or store bought tempeh bacon would be super awesome as would coconut bacon if you don’t need it to look exactly like it did on the show. You can also buy coconut bacon, but I’ve made this stuff and it’s really really easy and SO GOOD on grilled peanut butter, bacon, banana sandwiches.
And, if you’re anything like me and just can’t stop singing the bacon pancakes song, you can listen to the demo and get the chords for the song from Rebecca Sugar who writes a ton of the songs for the show and they are all pretty amazing.
I too have made vegan bacon pancakes after having the song stuck in my head for eternity. Glad to see there are other vegan Adventure Time fans out there!
