Maple Bacon Cupcakes

Updated: Jun 23, 2020

Salty and sweet have always been a flavor combination to stand the test of time. The savory and crunchy bacon pairs perfectly with the fluffy and sweet cupcake. Great cupcake for brunch or Father's Day !



1/2 cup oil

1 1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup sour cream

4 eggs

1 tbsp vanilla

3 cups all purpose flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/4 cup milk

1 tbsp vinegar

2 tbsp Maple Syrup

1/2 cup Bacon Grease


1 cup salted butter, softened

4 cups powdered sugar

2 tbsp Maple Syrup

2 tbsp Heavy Cream


Directions: Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

Fry your bacon in a pan. Place the bacon aside, and move your bacon grease into a small bowl. Wait for the bacon grease to cool completely before using. Now lets make your buttermilk! Pour your milk and vinegar into a medium bowl, set aside to let sit a few minutes. In a large bowl, cream together sugar, oil, and bacon grease. Add eggs one at time then stir in vanilla. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. This will be your “dry mix”. In your bowl with the sugar, oil, and grease, alternate mixing in your dry mix and homemade buttermilk. Fold in sour cream. Scoop into your cupcake pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.

When your cupcakes are completely cooled, it’s time to frost! In a stand mixer, beat your butter until smooth. Add maple syrup and heavy cream. Slowly add in the powdered sugar until smooth. If the buttercream is too stiff, add additional heavy cream 1/2 tsp at a time. If the buttercream is too soft, add in more powdered sugar 1/4 cup at a time until your desired consistency is reached. Place frosting in a bag using your favorite piping tip and swirl onto your cupcakes. Top with bacon crumbles. You can also decorate with sprinkles for a little extra flair! Enjoy!
