How to Make Grannie Styles' Maple BACON Praline Muffins
- Preheat oven to 385 degrees
Line cupcake pan with liners (this makes about 15 muffins)
Prepare BACON and Topping First.....
Take 5 slices of the BACON and cut in half cook thoroughly set aside to cool on a piece of paper towel. (I like my full slices of BACON baked, cooks more evenly which I bake in oven at 425 degrees on a wire rack placed on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Bake for about 10 min. flip and finish cooking for 10 min.)
Cut up rest of BACON in cubes *I use scissors and take about 3-4 slices at a time and chop them into the pan. Cook until crisp (not undercooked or burnt).
Set aside. When cooled crumble the pieces up.
Mix Cornstarch, Flour, Sugar, Cinnamon, Pecan chips, then add melted Butter. Then add 2 tablespoons of the Bacon crumble pieces into the mixture.
Mix Flour, Baking Powder, Salt and Sugar. In separate bowl beat 1 Egg, then add Milk, Vanilla, Maple Syrup, Applesauce. Stir the wet ingredients into the Flour mixture (do not beat, batter will be lumpy). Then fold about 4 tablespoons of crumb mixture and All of the BACON crumbles into batter. Spoon into liners filling about 3/4 of the cup.
Add crumb topping mixture to top of each one, about 2 tbl each, I did not waste this some had a little bit more.
Bake until golden brown about 20-25 min each insert toothpick in center and when it comes out clean, its done.
Cool or like me could not wait I grabbed one and cut open and put a slab of Butter and OMGGGOOODNESS!!!
While the Muffin goodness is cooking make frosting
Mix Powdered Sugar, Butter, and warm bacon grease. This should be a thick frosting consistency.
Put a dallop (I put in a baggie cut of tip) on each Muffin and top with pieces of the whole BACON pieces I had you reserve earlier.
And you guessed it DEVOUR THE BACON GOODNESS!
