Father's Day Cupcakes: Maple Bacon, that is!


There's been great response to the FREEBIE Father's Day Printables Set I released yesterday. I'm so glad everyone is enjoying the set and getting ready to surprise Dad. Now for that recipe I told you about.... MAPLE BACON CUPCAKES. Yes, that's right.... Bacon Cupcakes!

We're talking men here, girls! What man doesn't love bacon? Truth be told, this was actually my husband's idea. And let me just tell you.... party stylist he IS NOT, so I was pretty impressed with his creativity.  I have to say, they tasted pretty good, too, although I also have to admit, if it's got sugar in it I'm all over it and not too picky. But as a little novelty for Father's Day, I think they make a cute "manly" treat.


I adapted the recipe from one I found on Taste of Home. They are a bit of a cross between a corn muffin and cupcake and I sort of liked the sweet and salty mixture.


So are you ready to make those cupcakes for your #1 Man?


Here's what you'll need:

Maple Bacon Cupcakes
4 1/2 tablespoons of butter room temperature
1/2 tablespoon of bacon drippings (left in the refrigerator to solidify)
1 egg
5 tablespoons of brown sugar
4 tablespoons maple syrup
1 1/4 cup of self-rising flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
- Small pinch of salt
1/4 cup of milk
1/2 cup of cooked and crumbled bacon

Maple Frosting
- 4 tablespoons of butter 
- 2 tablespoons of maple syrup 
- 1 cup of powdered sugar turbinado sugar (optional but recommended) 
- Coarse grain sea salt (optional but recommended)


Step 1: Cream butter and solidified bacon drippings together.


Step 2: Add the brown sugar and maple syrup and beat again until creamy.



Step 3: Add the egg and beat until combined.


Step 4: Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together and then add some of the flour to the wet mixture. Stir the flour in and then add a little of the milk and stir it in. 


Step 5: Keep alternating stirring in flour and then milk, ending with flour. Mix just until combined and then fold half of the bacon pieces.


Step 6: Spoon the batter into baking cups.


Step 7: Place in oven at 350 degrees and bake for 16-19 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Recipe will make about 12 cupcakes.


Step 8: Mix your maple frosting ingredients together and then frost your cooled cupcakes. Add the remaining bacon pieces on top.

Yum! They look sort of pretty, don't you think? Or maybe my husband's love for bacon has rubbed off on me after all these years.


And don't forget to download your FREE FATHER'S DAY PRINTABLES HERE. There's a banner, tags, cupcake toppers and centerpieces all for your TIE-riffic dad, Step-dad or Granddad. Yep, I included some designs for all three so you can cover all of your Father's Day bases. 

Let's celebrate all the men in our lives and make them feel just a bit special if only for a day. We all know the next day it's "back to normal" and we'll be nagging them to pick up their dirty clothes and take out the trash!

Y'all have a great day!

The Unfinished Room said...

I was just going to make these for dessert for Father's Day dinner and I had the bacon drippings cooling on the stove from breakfast. I came in to get the recipe and went back out to the kitchen and my dear hubby had thrown out the bacon drippings! Ugh! Guess I will try them another time. They look delish!

This recipe for maple-flavored Father's Day cupcakes is a delightful treat. The ingredients include all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, unsalted butter, granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, milk, and maple syrup. The maple frosting is made with the same ingredients, but with a hint of salt. The batter is divided among the cupcake liners, filling each about 2/3 full.To make the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a cupcake pan with liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large mixing bowl, cream the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, vanilla extract, dry ingredients, and maple syrup, mixing until just combined.
Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake liners, filling each about 2/3 full. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Allow the cupcakes to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.Break the frosting with the softened butter, powdered sugar, maple syrup, and salt, beating until smooth and fluffy. If the frosting is too thick, add milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Frost the cupcakes generously with the maple frosting and optionally garnish with chopped pecans or walnuts for a nutty crunch.fauquier traffic lawyer
