Maple Bacon Cupcakes

  • Butter Cake:

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

  • 4 large eggs

  • 3 cups all-purpose soft-wheat flour

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup milk

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • Paper baking cups

  • Vegetable cooking spray

  • Maple Frosting:

  • 1 cup butter

  • 1 (16-oz.) package dark brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup

  • 4 cups powdered sugar

  • 2 teaspoons maple flavoring

  • Toppings:

  • 12 cooked bacon slices, broken to pieces


    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat butter and sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add to butter mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
    • Place paper baking cups in 2 (12-cup) muffin pans, and coat with cooking spray; spoon batter into cups, filling two-thirds full. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks, and cool completely.
    • To prepare frosting, melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Stir in evaporated milk, baking soda, and light corn syrup; bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and let cool. Transfer caramel mixture to a large bowl. Gradually add powdered sugar to caramel mixture; beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Stir in maple flavoring. Beat at high speed 2 minutes or until creamy. Icing firms up quickly, so use immediately. Makes 3 cups.
    • Frost each cupcake with Maple Frosting using metal tip no. 2D. Top each with bacon.
