  • 2 (16.3 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough, separated and cut into quarters


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat the inside of a 9-inch fluted tube pan (such as Bundt) with cooking spray.
  2. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Crumble when cool enough to handle; discard any pieces that are all fat.
  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat; stir in brown sugar and maple syrup and bring to a boil. Cook and stir until mixture begins to foam, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat.
  4. Mix white sugar and cinnamon in a resealable plastic bag. Add 6 to 8 biscuit pieces at a time to the bag; shake until well coated. Place sugared biscuits onto a plate and repeat to coat the rest.
  5. Empty any sugar mixture from the resealable bag into maple syrup mixture; place the saucepan over medium heat and stir until sugar dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Make four layers of ingredients in the prepared pan as follows: bacon, maple syrup mixture, biscuits. Finish with the last drizzle of maple syrup mixture.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until biscuits are cooked through, about 35 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 to 20 minutes, then invert onto a serving plate.
