Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens tip

Reynolds Kitchens® Bakeware Pans are perfect for baking and transporting this delicious dish to potluck and tailgates or even give it away – there’s no pan to return!


  • 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 Kitchens® Bakeware Bacon Pan
  • Reynolds Kitchens® 8x8 Bakeware Pan


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F. Arrange bacon in a Reynolds Kitchens® Bakeware Bacon Pan.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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 a Reynolds Kitchens® 8x8 Bakeware Pan.

Step 4

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let cool slightly before serving. Drizzle with additional maple syrup, if desired.
