Maple Bacon Cupcakes

Deliciously moist maple butter cupcakes with a rich flavor.  These Maple Bacon Cupcakes are made with maple cream cheese buttercream frosting and pack plenty of real bacon for every bacon lover!

I’ve been meaning to make these Maple Bacon Cupcakes for some time now.  I originally wanted to share them in fall where I think these flavors perfectly describe November.  But since that didn’t happen, I wanted to share them in time for Father’s Day because what father doesn’t love bacon?!  These Maple Bacon Cupcakes pack so much flavor. You’ll love the combination of salty bacon and sweet maple syrup and tangy cream cheese frosting!

Last week I shared my Churro Cake recipe and I loved the moist and tender cake so much that I’ve adapted the recipe and made that recipe into these Maple Bacon Cupcakes.  The biggest change with the original recipe is that this one uses maple sugar.  I’ve been holding onto some maple sugar in the pantry for about a year now and I’m excited about the flavor it added to this recipe.


  • 2 1/2 cups plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup maple sugar (or 1 cup granulated sugar in place of maple sugar)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup shortening, packed
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup full-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk ( I used half & half )
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons imitation maple extract/flavoring
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • For the Maple Frosting
  • 18 tablespoons (that's 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 5 cups powdered confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons imitation maple extract flavoring
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, soft
  • 1 cup shortening, packed
  • 2 pounds bacon, finely chopped
  • maple syrup, to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a muffin tin pan with paper cups; set aside.
  2. In a bowl fit with paddle attachment, whisk together flour, sugars, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  
  3. With the mixer on low, slowly beat in chunks of shortening and butter.  Turn mixer to medium and beat until mixture has small crumbs.
