Cut 6oz/170gm bacon into small chunks cook till crisp in a frying pan or hot oven.

Heat oven to 220C/425F.

Take a shallow ovenproof dish or roasting pan at least 30 cm/12 inches square, or 3 US quarts capacity, and heat half a stick, 60 gms, of butter in it.

Whisk together:

·         4 eggs

·         1 US cup, or 125 gm of flour

·         2 US cups, nearly half a litre of milk – use less milk if you prefer a thicker batter

·         Pinch salt if wanted

Making the batter in advance and 'resting' it for an hour or two is recommended by perfectionists.

Pour batter into the hot fat, sprinkle the bacon cubes on top, and bake for 20-30 mins until it looks puffy and well-browned. Time will vary according to depth of batter in dish etc.
