  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon buttermilk, divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1 (12-ounce) can SPAM® with Bacon
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon maple flavoring


  1. To make dough, in large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt.
