Everything is better with bacon, and this corn bread is no exception! Step your recipe up a notch with this new twist on a classic Southern snack.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees 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.

A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it night before , then clear it off the next day.
