Yesterday morning I met my friend Robbie at Pancake Parlour in South Yarra for breakfast. He had an "IT", which you can just see in the background - two buttermilk pancakes with hot buttered walnuts and bananas and a scoop of ice-cream.
And for me... seeing as I'm back to bacon... I had a Buckleberry Pancake.
This is a buckwheat and blueberry pancake, with crisp bacon and two free-range scrambled eggs. This white thing on the pancake is whipped butter - I didn't eat it and just left it on the side. I did pour some maple-flavoured syrup (real maple syrup costs extra, whereas the maple-flavoured syrup is given to you in jugs on the table) on the bacon. I've read about this strange combination many times before, especially in reference to Canada, and have always wanted to try it. It's a flavour sensation! The salty bacon, the sweet, sweet syrup. DROOL!
(And due to the incredible fattening-ness of this dish, for the next few weeks I think I'd better stick to fruit salads for breakfast... *sigh*)
