  • Step 1

    for frosting:

    in a large bowl, beat syrup & butter until combined. add the sugar, a bit at a time, & whip until combined.

  • Step 2

    for cupcakes:

    preheat oven to 325 f. line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners.

    sift together the flour, salt, baking soda & powder.

  • Step 6

    add 1/3 of the flour mixture to the butter mixture & mix well, then add 1/2 the milk & mix well. repeat until all the milk & flour are incorporated (make sure you end with the dry ingredients).

  • Step 7

    fold in the bacon. taste and add more syrup, flour, or milk if needed for desired taste. keep in mind the maple frosting is very sweet, & that maple syrup in large amounts can break a cake batter.
    *i added another Tbs of milk & syrup, as my batter was very thick.

  • Step 8

    divide batter evenly, filling 1/2 - 3/4 full. bake 18-22 minutes.
    *18 minutes was perfect for me.
