pure maple syrup, plus more for serving
eggs, lightly beaten
unsalted butter, melted
- Cook bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels, then break into 1" pieces. Reserve drippings and wipe out skillet.
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees. 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 teaspoon drippings in skillet over medium-low heat. For each pancake, arrange some of the bacon pieces in a circle in skillet. Slowly pour 1/3 cup batter over bacon, starting in center and moving outward in a swirling motion to prevent bacon from shifting. Cook until small bubbles form on surface. Flip, and cook until golden brown. Transfer finished pancakes to a baking sheet and keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve with syrup.
