4 slices crisply cooked bacon, crumbled
1/4 cup maple-flavored syrup
1 medium (1 cup) apple, peeled, quartered, sliced

Powdered sugar


Heat oven to 425°F.

Place 2 tablespoons butter into 9-inch ceramic pie plate or metal pie pan; place in oven 4-5 minutes or until melted and pie plate is hot. Spread melted butter over bottom of pie plate.

Combine flour, milk and eggs in bowl; beat with whisk until well mixed. Carefully pour batter into hot pie plate; sprinkle with bacon. Bake 14-17 minutes or until puffed and light golden brown.

Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add maple syrup, apple, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4-5 minutes or until apple is tender; keep warm.

Spoon apple mixture over puffed pancake; sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.

Recipe Tip

- For more intense apple flavor, use applewood smoked bacon. It can be found in the bacon section of the supermarket.

- Cook bacon ahead of time; crumble. Refrigerate or freeze in resealable plastic food storage bag.
