Whether you’re baking for a group of kids or an upscale party, cupcakes are a universal favorite. These sweet and savory cupcakes were made specifically for bacon lovers with a sweet tooth.


*Melt butter in skillet over medium heat; cook until butter begins to brown.


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Arrange strips of bacon on a rack set in a rimmed baking sheet (line baking sheet with foil for easy clean up).
  2. Bake, rotating pan halfway through cooking, for about 15 minutes or until bacon is almost crisp. Remove 2 strips of bacon and place on paper towel to cool. Sprinkle remaining piece of bacon evenly with 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar. Bake for 3 minutes or until sugar melts. Set aside to use as garnish.
  3. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Line 12-cup muffin tin with paper or foil liners.
  4. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl; mix well.
  5. Whisk together browned butter, remaining 3/4 cup sugar, eggs, buttermilk, 1/4 cup maple syrup and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl. Gradually stir in flour mixture. Crumble the 2 strips of bacon and fold into batter. Spoon into prepared cups, filling 2/3 full.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in cupcake comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 15 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Stir remaining 2 tablespoons maple syrup into prepared frosting. Pipe onto cupcakes. Crumble remaining sugar-coated strip of bacon; sprinkle over cupcakes.
