Felt like I was in Competing in Cupcake Wars! The ingredients from Dining on a Dollar Recipe Contest -- Spring 2013 made it tricky to create a dessert. Must say I nailed it! Tender, soft crumb with hint of bacon bits and topped with Maple frosting complement each other perfectly. The budget ingredient ketchup and applesauce gave the cupcakes a sweetness and added moisture. A MUST MAKE! You won't be disappointed. FYI the bacon is pieces so you will have bits just as if it was chips of chocolate. If you want you can save the bacon bits for just topping the frosting.
