- 4 slices bacon
- 5 tablespoons maple syrup, divided, plus additional for serving (optional)
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- Reynolds® Bakeware Bacon Pan
- Reynolds® Bakeware Pan
Preheat oven to 400°F. Arrange bacon in a Reynolds® Bakeware Bacon Pan.
Bake for 8 minutes, until almost crisp. Drizzle the bacon with 1 tablespoon maple syrup and bake 4 to 6 minutes more or until glazed. Cook longer for crispier bacon. Cool and chop.
Stir together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, butter and remaining 4 tablespoons maple syrup. Add the milk mixture all at once to the cornmeal mixture. Add the chopped bacon. Stir just until moistened. Pour the batter into an 8x8-inch Reynolds® Bakeware Pan.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let cool slightly before serving. Drizzle with additional maple syrup, if desired.
