Light and fluffy buttermilk bacon pancakes are a sweet and savory breakfast

Do you like pancakes?  My daughter is a huge pancake fan!  She loves them with strawberry, blueberries, bananas, and even eggnog.  In fact, I don’t think she has ever met a pancake that she did not like.  These Buttermilk Bacon Pancakes are a family favorite.  If you don’t want to add the whiskey, simply add a little bit of cherry juice to your warm maple syrup.  By the way, is it whiskey or whisky?  Turns out the Irish spell it whiskey and the Scots spell it whisky.  My late mother was Irish and I don’t want her paying me any late-night visits so I think I will stay with whiskey.
