How to Make It
Preheat a griddle to 350°F. Place bacon in a single layer on griddle, and cook, turning occasionally, until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Wipe griddle clean.
Whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Whisk in buttermilk and eggs. Gently whisk in butter. Batter will be lumpy. Let stand 5 minutes.
Working in batches, place strips of bacon 3 inches apart on griddle (still at 350°F). Pour about 1/4 cup batter over each bacon strip. Cook until tops are covered with bubbles and bottoms are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining bacon and pancake batter. Pancakes can be held warm in a 200°F oven for up to 30 minutes. Serve with maple syrup.
