It’s really hard to put this one for Breakfast, when it’s sort of a dessert, but oh my, once you taste these beauties, you will weep tears of joy! This recipe was originally posted on theMamasBlog and I saved it a couple years ago when it was shared. Unfortunately her site is no longer open, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy this luscious recipe!
Maple French Toast and Bacon Cupcakes
French Toast Cupcakes:
¾ cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1½ cups cake flour, sifted
1½ teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup milk, at room temperature
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Maple Buttercream Frosting:
2 Sticks butter, softened
2¾ cups powdered sugar
2 teaspoons heavy cream, at room temperature
1 teaspoon maple extract
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Fry (or bake) up some crispy bacon and set aside.
In a standing mixer, combine the butter and sugar and mix.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Set aside.
Add the eggs to the creamed butter one at time, waiting for each one to be fully incorporated before adding the next. Then add the milk.
Stir in the dry ingredients.
Divide the batter evenly in the muffin tin.
Bake at 375* for 25-27 minutes.
Remove the cupcakes from the oven and cool completely.

Your recipe sounds divine and I may bake up a batch today. Need to get some housecleaning done before I can fun cooking. Do plan to make some homemade vegetable soup for dinner and the rest I haven’t figured out.
