Bacon Day Bacon Cupcake recipe
Excuse the poor pictures…

Tomorrow is International Bacon Day. Act Accordingly.

In a half ass attempt to celebrate, I attempted today to make Bacon Cupcakes. They may be messy and poorly formed, but I would say I succeeded.

And this is how:


  • Bacon (a slice per cupcake. This recipe has a yield of a dozen, but you may not want to make them all bacony. So, use your own judgement.(You’re going to make them all bacony, right? Thought so.)).
  • 1 cup of flour.
  • 1/2 cup of cold coffee
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened.
  • 1/2 cup of sugar (even less if you don’t want it too sweet).
  • 1/4 tbs salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • Pre-made chocolate icing (or whatever you prefer. I was lazy).
  1. Preheat oven to 375 f
  2. Mix all dry ingredients (minus the bacon) in large bowl.
  3. Mix all wet ingredients (minus the icing) in another bowl.
  4. Mix wet and dry ingredients.
  5. On a cookie sheet, place 12 large cupcake cups. In any of the cupcakes you want bacon, place a coiled strip of uncooked bacon, and then dump your chocolate batter in it, like so…>>>>

    Notice, not all cupcakes are bacony due to somewhat vegetarian girlfriend…
  6. Place in oven. Wait about 25 minutes. Remove from oven. Or try to eat them in your oven and see how far that gets you.
  7. Wait for them to cool down some. Remove carefully from paper cup. They will be a little moist still from the rendered bacon fat. Let cool on rack.
  8. Ice those bad boys.
  9. Eat.
  10. Repeat.

There you are. A heart-attack in a cup. for a first time attempt, they were a little messy, mostly with the bacon getting a little loose. Might try to fasten them with a toothpick for future attempts.

Happy Bacon Day.

Anyways. Enjoy Bacon Day. Have fun. Eat Bacon. Maybe, have a drink. Decorate your car. Brush your teeth.

No one judges on Bacon Day.
