mmmmm i'm a veg but bacon and chocolate sounds goooood!!! i've heard/seen cupcakes with bacon sprinkled on the top but in the actual batter sounds more fun to me
Thanks! They are yummy! I was a veg for 7 years but now I am a hardcore omnivore.
Here is the recipe for the cupcakes, modified from the greatest cup cake book "Crazy About Cupcake"
3/4 cup room temp, unsalted butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
3 large eggs
2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup milk (I was out of regular milk so I used evaporated milk)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
bacon I sliced and crisped about 6 slices but one could use more or less, next time I will do more
preheat oven to 350
cream butter an sugar with an electric mixer 3-5 minutes, till fluffy
beat in maple syrup
add vanilla and eggs until the mixture is smooth
in a seperate bowl sift flour,baking power, and salt
alternating with the milk, add the flour mixture, beat well
stir in walnuts and bacon
fill cup cake 3/4 full bake for 20ish minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean
This made 15 normal cupcakes plus one large cupcake
Yum yum! Enjoy!
