Dutch Coffee Bacon Pancakes – Polderkoek or Pannenkoek

This is farm workers food, hearty and simple, all in one plate. Part of milk is replaced by a strong black coffee. In original recipe 3 bacon slices used for one pancake, and a bacon grease too, but I made a lighter version. Coffee taste is not very strong, next time I add more coffee and use crumbled bacon.
