I Love BACON! I searched all over the internet for a yummy BACON muffin and nothing caught my eye. So I came up with this.
Bacon and Maple flavored muffin, topped with a Praline & BACON crumb topping with a dallop of Bacon frosting. Taste close to Pancakes and bacon with lots of syrup.

How to Make Grannie Styles' Maple BACON Praline Muffins

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 385 degrees
    Line cupcake pan with liners (this makes about 15 muffins)

    Prepare BACON and Topping First.....

    BACON-
    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.

    Topping-
    Mix Cornstarch, Flour, Sugar, Cinnamon, Pecan chips, then add melted Butter. Then add 2 tablespoons of the Bacon crumble pieces into the mixture.
    Set aside.
  2. Batter-
    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
  3. 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!
