Maple Bacon Cupcakes

I have wanted to make maple bacon cupcakes for such a ridiculously long time I don't know why I never have.  I found this recipe on Your Cup of Cake and just couldn't resist.  A got a lot of weird looks from my friends who I told I was going to make bacon cupcakes, but everyone that tried them agreed that they were delicious.

It isn't a bacon cake or a bacon buttercream.  It's actually a vanilla nutmeg cake with a maple buttercream and some crispy bacon crumbled on top.

To make the cake I used:

  • Box of white cake mix
  • 1 1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of oil
  • 3/4 cup of milk 
  • 3/4 cup of sour cream 
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla extract
Bake the cupcakes based on the directions on your box, take them out and allow them to cool completely.
To make the buttercream:
  • 1 cup of softened butter
  • 4 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tsp of maple extract
  • 2 tbsp of milk
Cook around 8-10 strips of bacon, cut it up and sprinkle it on top.

I think they look fantastic and since I'm such a fan of salty/sweet desserts I thought they were delicious.

These are my second time baking with bacon, check out my Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies here.

Have you guys ever had desserts with bacon in them?
