Not a bad recipe at all if you modify it a little...

First of all, if you use self-raising flour as the recipe directs, you do NOT need to add any additional baking powder or salt.

For the frosting, use 1/2 a cup of butter instead of the suggested 1/4 cup (i.e. 4 tablespoons) and then use 1 and a 1/2 cups of icing sugar. The frosting does end up being quite sweet.

For best results, of course, use the best quality ingredients you can find. Using a good quality maple syrup will make all the difference.

If you love bacon and you love maple syrup (like me!) you will love this cupcake. Just tweak it a little as I have done and it will not disappoint.

Trying to figure out what went wrong. The muffins rose way above the tin, and collapsed.. I have to disagree about the flavor though.
Going to try one more time.

Made this recipe today for a homebrew tasting we are having in a couple of weeks. Pairing bacon with beer this year. Turned out great!

Well, this was a little different. I've never had bacon cupcakes! I don't think I had enough bacon in the recipe, though. (Too much checking the quality!) I'd like to try again, sometime with a little more of the pig meat! I went ahead and made the frosting, as I thought it could use a little more umph! Thnx for sharing your recipe, GingerlyJ.
