Bacon Cupcakes

Hola and happy fall!

Today I am posting something new and unique (For me anyway!) Cupcakes. But not just any cupcakes. I call them the happy surprise bite! What’s the surprise? Bacon! More specifically, bacon jam! Woohoo! I was super happy when I received some delicious jams from TBJ Gourmet. (https://tbjgourmet.com) They say everything tastes better with bacon. With this recipe, I would have to agree!

Let’s get started!

Recipe for 12 cupcakes:

  • ½ cup of butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup, plus 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt

Filling:

– TBJ original jam

Frosting:

  • 1 stick butter, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of TBJ Classic Bacon Jam

Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare a cupcake pan with liners.

Place the butter and sugar in a mixer and beat at medium speed until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time and continue mixing. Next add the milk and the vanilla extract.

In a separate large mixing bowl, add the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat until well combined.

Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to make sure everything gets in.

Fill the cupcake liners about half way and bake for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes. Remove to a cooling rack to cool completely, about 30 minutes.

The frosting: Combine the butter and the sugar in a large mixing bowl and mix until smooth. Add the maple syrup and the Bacon Jam. Again, scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to make sure everything is mixed in.

Using a paring knife, make a 1-inch-deep hole from the top of each cupcake (you can eat the tiny piece). Fill each hole with 1 teaspoon of bacon jam. çFinally, pipe (or spread) the frosting onto the cupcakes.

Bon profit!

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at joyofspanishcooking@gmail.com Bon profit!
