‘Fluffy American-style pancakes are my favourite type of pancake, but I also can never resist those melty cheese-and-ham-stuffed crêpes you get at street-food markets. This got me thinking: what if American-style pancakes could be stuffed with cheese? Win, win! These delicious pancakes have an oozing brie and cheddar centre, and are served with optional crispy beef or turkey bacon instead of ham. They’re the best of both worlds, and sure to be a winner with cheese-lovers – the gooey cheese-pull you get when you break into them is bound to get you lots of social media attention, too.’
