Maple Bacon Cupcake
We are still working on getting our store together, so this calls for some tasty treats. I love candied bacon with its salty sweetness.
Cupcake Batter 1.5 c of all-purpose flour 1/2 Tb baking powder 1/4 tsp salt 1 stick of butter 1/4 c packed brown sugar 1/2 c sugar 2 eggs 3 Tb maple syrup 2/3 c milk
Chocolate Frosting 1/2 c vegetable shortening 1/2 tsp vanilla 6 Tb water (you may need more depending on consistency) 1/2 bag of powder sugar 1 Tb dried egg whites Pinch of salt 1/3 c cocoa powder
Garnish Candied Bacon (bacon and brown sugar) Sea Salt
Preheat oven to 350°. Mix together all ingredients of cupcake batter. Pour into lined muffin tin. Bake for 18 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from oven and let cool. Meanwhile make chocolate frosting and candied bacon. For frosting mix all ingredients together this should be thick consistency. For the candied bacon cook on medium heat in a skillet, when the bacon is cooked halfway sprinkle brown sugar on both sides. Cook until the bacon is done. Let cool.
Assemble your cupcakes and enjoy. First there was breakfast for dinner, now there is breakfast for dessert.
