Published January 21, 2013 by thepinkgourmet

If you want a more exciting biscuit you should try this recipe!  These biscuits are sweet and savory at the same time. They also warm up very well.  These would be great on a lazy weekend morning.

FOR THE SYRUP

1/2 pound bacon, cooked until medium brown

1/3 c brown sugar

1/4 c all-purpose flour

1/4 c maple syrup

2 T melted butter

FOR THE BISCUITS

2 c all-purpose flour

2-1/2 t of baking powder

1/4 t baking soda

1 t salt

1/4 c vegetable shortening

2 T butter

3/4 c low-fat buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 475F. Lightly grease a 9″ round pan (a springform pan is helpful but not

required). First prepare the syrup by chopping the cooked bacon into bite size pieces and

then combine with the remaining syrup  ingredients from the brown sugar through the melted

butter. Stir until thoroughly combined and spread over the bottom of the prepared baking dish.

Next prepare the biscuit dough. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder,  baking soda and

salt and sift together. Cut in the shortening and butter mix together with a pastry dough blender.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the buttermilk. Gently blend the dry

ingredients into the buttermilk forming a ball of dough. Add additional buttermilk as needed one

teaspoon at a time.  Drop oversized tablespoons of the biscuit dough over the syrup in the pan until

covered. Bake for 10 minutes at 475F and then turn the oven off. Leave the biscuits in the oven for

another 5 to 10 minutes, until golden brown. Remove the biscuits from the oven and immediately

turn the pan upside down onto a serving platter. Lift off the pan and scrape any remaining syrup

over the biscuits. Pull apart to serve. Best served warm.

Lightly grease your springform  or 9 inch round pan.  I just happen to have a heart pan so that is what I used.

Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in your buttermilk.  Gently blend until you have a ball of dough.

Drop oversized tablespoons of biscuit dough over the syrup in the pan.  Make sure to cover the whole pan.  Bake for 10 minutes at 475 degrees.

Turn off oven and leave in for another 5-15 minutes until the tops are  golden brown.

Immediately turn upside down onto a serving platter. Make sure you scrape off any remaining syrup stuck to the pan.

Look how yummy this looks!  I think you will be pleasantly surprised.  Have this with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and that is all you need.  It is very filling.

I give this recipe out of 4……
