Because really decadent brunch is super important once in a while, and it’s the only time I will surrender my kitchen dictatorship to squirrelfriend, who rules forever at Dutch baby pancakes and has de-pescetarianized me by finding out my SECRET CRIPPLING BACON WEAKNESS OH GOD APPLEWOOD SMOKED UNCURED BACON AGGGHGHGHGGHGHGHGH UNFFFFFFFF. Needless to say, unlike most of my food posts, this is not vegan, gluten free, or even marginally containing any sort of nutritional value other than perhaps hangover curing properties. And it RULES.

YOU NEED and probably have in your house already:

  • butter
  • flour
  • salt
  • milk
  • eggs
  • confectioner’s sugar
  • regular sugar
  • a lemon
  • bacon
  • fresh berries
  • vanilla extract or some flavourful booze
  • a cast iron pan, a cast iron griddle, and a saucepan
  • goofy apron (see below) and handsome assistant to cook bacon for you.

Got it all? Cool, here we go.
