the bacon maple bar ... Aka... a maple frosted bacon donut!!!
Supposedly its like bacon, maple syrup and pancakes all in one!!!
We won't be visiting Portland Oregon or the sinful "Voodoo Donut" shop anytime soon sadly...
but to honor our curiosity I decided to bake us some Bacon Cupcakes inspired by that crazy bacon maple bar!
There are a lot of recipes for bacon cupcakes floating around in the internet and mine is a combination of a couple with some of my own magic thrown in.
This one has a maple mascarpone cream cheese frosting and spiced maple magic inside. The bacon is organic and Hickory smoked straight from the Amish meat market near us.
How was it you ask?????
