Leigh who lives in Melbourne writes a very intriguing blog, full of french inspired recipes that were most certainly appealing such as Navarin Pritanier or lemon and lavender chicken. And, there’s lots of simple, elegant desserts such as Raspberry Coconut Cake, which I also chose to make for tonight’s dinner and it’s fabulous .This raspberry coconut cake disappeared within an hour.
Her photos are beautiful and there is an understated beauty and elegance to Chit Chat Chomp. I would love to sit and have some tea and cake with her.

Use crispy bacon. As much or as little as you like.
The original recipe was for apple pancakes. I added bacon because I just happened to have some really good apple smoked bacon on hand. Either way you eat the apple pancakes, they are tasty. My twist to her recipe was to saute the apples in the bacon grease before adding them to the pancakes.
- 125 gram flour (about 1 cup)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 cup of milk
- ½ apple, coarsely chopped
- 3 pieces bacon, crisply cooked
- Cook bacon crispy. Remove and drain.
- Chop apples and saute in hot bacon grease. Remove. Drain.
- Mix flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl, then add the egg, milk and apple and crumbled bacon.
- Heat a cast iron griddle to medium heat. Rub coconut oil with paper towel. There should not be any extra fat in pan or pancakes won't cook properly or evenly.
- Place heaped tablespoonfuls of the batter onto a lightly greased fry pan over medium heat and cook for approximately 2 minutes each side. Turn when you see the pancake bubble.
- Serve with maple syrup and yogurt or sour cream.
- This made 12 medium sized pancakes, enough for 4 servings.
