Directions See How It's Made
- Cook bacon in two batches n a large skillet over medium-low heat, turning occasionally, until crisp, 6-7 minutes. Drain bacon pn paper towels, then break into 3/4 - 1 inch pieces. Reserve drippings and wipe out skillet.
- Preheat oven to 200°F Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk together buttermilk, syrup, eggs and butter. Add to flour mixture, and whisk until just combined. (batter will have lumps).
- Heat 1 teaspoons drippings in skillet over medium-low heat. For each pancake, arrange some of the bacon pieces in circle in the skillet. Slowly pour 1/3 cup batter over bacon, starting in center and moving outward in a swirling motion to prevent bacon from shifting. Cool until small bubbles form on surface, Flip, and cook until golden brown, Transfer pancakes to a baking sheet, and keep warm in oven. Repeat wih remaining bacon and batter. Serve with syrup.
