Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 200°F.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: buttermilk, melted butter, and egg.
  4. Whisk flour mixture into buttermilk mixture until moistened, with small to medium lumps remaining.
  5. In a large cast-iron, nonstick skillet or on a griddle, cook bacon over medium-high until fat is rendered and bacon is browned on one side, about 5-6 minutes. Flip and cook until golden and crisp on the underside, about 1-3 minutes more.
  6. Set bacon aside on paper towel-lined plate. Pour off all but 1 tsp fat from skillet, saving excess bacon fat in a container.
  7. Heat skillet over medium. Pour 1/4 cup of batter into skillet and top each with a bacon slice.
  8. Cook until some bubbles appear on top of pancakes and a few have burst, about 2 minutes. With a spatula, carefully flip the pancakes and cook until browned on the underside, about 2 minutes more.
  9. Transfer to a platter, bacon side up, and loosely tent with foil.
  10. Keep pancakes warm in the oven and repeat with remaining batter, adding more bacon fat if needed. Serve with pure maple syrup.
