Maple-Bacon Biscuit Bake

Ingredients

SYRUP

  • 1/2 pound bacon cooked until medium-brown
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

BISCUITS

  • 2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Bakewell Cream*
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter 4 tablespoons
  • 1 cup cold milk or cold buttermilk
  • *If you don't have Bakewell Cream substitute 2 teaspoons baking powder and omit the baking soda.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 475°F. Lightly grease an 8" square or 9" round pan; whichever size you choose, make sure it's at least 2" deep, to prevent any boil-over.
  2. Syrup: Chop the cooked bacon into 1/2" pieces. Combine the bacon with the remaining syrup ingredients, stirring until well combined. Spread in the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Biscuits: Whisk the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  4. Work in the butter until the mixture is crumbly; some larger, pea-sized pieces of butter may remain intact.
  5. Add the milk or buttermilk, stirring to make a sticky dough.
  6. Drop the dough in heaping tablespoonfuls atop the syrup in the pan. A tablespoon cookie scoop, slightly overfilled, works well here.
  7. Bake the biscuits for 10 minutes. Turn the oven off, and leave them in the oven for an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until they're golden brown.
  8. Remove the biscuits from the oven, and immediately turn the pan over onto a serving plate. Lift off the pan, and scrape any syrup left in the pan onto the biscuits. Pull biscuits apart to serve.
  9. Yield: 16 small biscuits.
