Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes with Maple Frosting*

Do you know how to get to a man’s heart arteries?  Bacon. There are a few ways to convince a man to marry you…and while I am sure you can figure out a couple, the biggest one for my husband was bacon. When I want something (hello, new shoes?!), all I have to do is get up early and make some delicious, thick, center cut bacon…and by that afternoon my feet will be sittin’ pretty in a beautiful new pair of shoes. This trick works because he is either slowly dying from his arteries hardening and can’t catch me, or because I sneak out while he is still face down in his plate of bacon. Either way, it works, and that’s all that matters.

Now, how would I top a big plate of bacon? Well, how about a Chocolate Bacon Cupcake with Maple Frosting! I have been dreaming of a bacon chocolate cupcake ever since the bacon/chocolate trend started. But I was nervous just to jump in with out an idea of what I should do. I have googled recipes…and nothing really stood out to me. But after making the 100 Grand Cupcakes where I used the caramel syrup to make the salted caramel frosting, I knew I finally put the ultimate cupcake together in my head! I used that same exact method for the frosting, and substituted pure maple syrup for the caramel! These were amazing and definitely a favorite among the guys!


Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes with Maple Frosting

Yield: 24 Cupcakes

Recipe Notes: There are two important ingredients for this cupcake. First being the bacon, of course. Don't cheat yourself by using turkey bacon...or worse...pre-cooked bacon! Use good, quality bacon. Trust me, it is worth it. And also spend the money and buy the pure maple syrup. I promise you that Aunt Jemima just ain't gonna cut it in this recipe!


  • 3/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup bacon, cooked and chopped


  • 2 sticks unsalted butter; room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 pound confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup; plus more for drizzling
  • 1 teaspoon salt


For the cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners. Whisk together cocoa and hot water until smooth. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Melt butter with sugar in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring to combine. Remove from heat, and pour into a mixing bowl. With an electric mixer on medium-low speed, beat until mixture is cooled, 4 to 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until each is incorporated, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add vanilla, then cocoa mixture, and beat until combined. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture in two batches, alternating with the sour cream, and beating until just combined after each. Remove from stand mixer and gently fold in bacon.

Divide batter evenly among lined cups, filling each three- quarters full. Bake, rotating tins halfway through, until a cake tester inserted in centers comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Transfer tins to wire racks to cool 15 minutes; turn out cupcakes onto racks and let cool completely. Frost as desired.

For the frosting:
Cream the butter in the bowl of an electric or stand mixer. Add the vanilla extract, salt and pure maple syrup and combine well.

Begin adding in the sugar and mixing thoroughly after each addition. After all of the sugar has been added and mixed thoroughly, give it a taste and decide if you want to add in more maple syrup. For thicker frosting you can gradually add in a little more sugar.

Garnish with chopped bacon and a drizzle of pure maple syrup if you wish.

    I’m with you on the bacon. That’s my plan for when I meet my future husband. Just stuff him full of bacon and then get him to agree with whatever I want while he’s still in a stupor. It’s definitely the way to go.

    Although, with cupcakes this delicious, I just might be in a stupor as well! These sound AMAZING. I don’t know how you come up with these things. Your brain sounds like a really fun place to be.

    Although the bacon cupcakes are delicious, the frosting is for butter lovers only. We had to add more sugar and more maple and then more sugar and more maple to make it edible. And then still decided to toss it. We’ll be enjoying the brilliance of bacon cupcakes, but I would watch out for the frosting.

    Samantha — February 18, 2012 @ 9:57 pm

    I have also been curious about the bacon/chocolate trend. The cupcakes sound awesome. I know you said that PURE MAPLE SYRUP is the only way to go, my question is: do you think homemade syrup would cut it? Ever since I learned to make my own version of maple syrup (super easy), I never buy it anymore. We just don’t use syrup enough to buy it. That being said, I just may want to try this recipe, and if I absolutely need to buy syrup instead of make it, I’m willing. :)

    • Jessica replied: — February 21st, 2012 @ 12:27 am

      What exactly is homemade syrup?

      Pure Maple Syrup is extremely different from the regular pancake syrups and has a very different flavor. It is also much thinner.

      I am assuming that your homemade syrup is equivalent to the traditional pancake syrups…if so, I would not recommend using it.

      You can buy mini bottles of pure maple syrup though! Places like World Market have mini ones for only a couple dollars!

  42. 42

    Samantha — February 21, 2012 @ 9:10 am

    Haha. Your reply made me laugh. I guess, looking back, it was a dumb question. You’re right about the syrup. A few months ago I found this easy recipe to make syrup–basically sugar, water and whatever flavor extract you like. Pretty much a simple syrup with brown sugar and flavoring… I generally use maple extract, but raspberry is good too.

    Thanks for setting me straight! I’m constantly learning in the kitchen. :) I’ll let you know if (more like when) I try this recipe!

    This recipe produced 26 hefty cupcakes for me. Might be good to mention at the top how much it makes…

Though I do have to make a few cupcakes before adding the bacon… for my vegetarian and Muslim friends. LOL!

    And I agree with Jane on adding to the recipe how many cupcakes it makes. I keep forgetting that it makes a lot and foolishly make a double batch! Not that having a ton of leftovers is a BAD thing… 😉

      Nope, the buttercream does not have to be refrigerated. However, make sure and store them in an airtight container. And if I were you, I would store them in the fridge until about 6 hours before and then let them come to room temperature for the party. :)

I’m going to make some of these for a bake sale we’re having at work. The only thing I think would make them better is to add a little cayene pepper in the cupcake mix.

    My only advice for novice bakers like me, make sure the bacon is crispy. Some of mine was too chewy and I know I didn’t chop it small enough. But I’ll fix that for round 2. 😉

    Olivia — March 14, 2014 @ 12:43 pm

    Made these for my husband’s birthday and OMG were they delicious!

    The cupcake batter was very thick, but when baked the cupcake turned into a sturdy, dense, but not overpowering on the chocolate flavor cupcake. I could only barely taste the bacon, but it was a nice surprise. The next day the bacon flavor was more prominent than when fresh (just fyi).

    The frosting was sweet! So the added bacon on top was a must to cut through and I did add more salt to the frosting to even out the flavor. Everyone at hubby’s work loved the frosting, a few were hesitant to try a maple, but once they had a bite they were singing praises for it!
    I actually ran out of frosting and since this recipe made almost 30 cupcakes.

    I would recommend that you double up the cupcake cups if using paper ones, the bacon grease seeped through the bottom of mine.

    Overall GREAT cupcake! Thank you!!!

    […] Thank you, thank you, cool KC! Those cupcakes were (yes, they’re gone) right on time and delicious.  As to your note about being torn between the cupcakes and chocolate covered bacon? Really, there’s no wrong answer there.  Maybe I need to mashup the two and do french toast maple bacon cupcakes with chocolate shavings. . .mmmm. . .bacon cupcakes.  Must.start.looking. While I won’t delay this post any longer as I search for the holy grail of baked goods, I will leave you with a fall themed goodie that I really want to make once I can maneuver around the kitchen on both feet.  You know how I feel about pumpkin; I hope I get to indulge the season has passed. And of course, if anyone is feeling ambitious enough to make these and then drop them off at my house for a sampling, I’m more than happy to oblige! I promise to put my huge stick away.   Happy Friday, y’all! Update! Found it!  Click here. […]

    Thank you for the recipe! Just made these cupcakes, they are delicious! I made some candied bacon to sprinkle on top! Sorry if this is a silly question, but I am wondering why melt the butter and sugar, how is different from creaming the butter and sugar? Thanks again!
