Carmijok, how about pumpkin cake, apple cake, Anything with pecans, yum! The local cupcake shop in my area makes a pancake cupcake and tops it with the maple BC and bacon crumbles on top. I haven't tried it but it won an award at a cupcake tasting contest?

Jem2131, my Walmart carries maple extract and I use it to make homemade maple syrup. It's about $3 for a good sized bottle. I don't know about using it to make BC though because it's very very dark. It would definitely make the BC brown.

Meijer and Kroger also carry the extract, if there's one near you.

Jem2131: I'd love the french toast cupcake recipe, if you can share it!

French Toast & Bacon Cupcakes (Recipe Source: Life is Better with Cake):

3/4 cup unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), at room temperature

1 cup sugar

1 1/2 cups cake flour, sifted

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon fine salt

1/2 cup milk, at room temperature

1 ½  teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon nutmeg (fresh, if you have it)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 large eggs, at room temperature, separated

6 slices of bacon

Yield: 12 cupcakes

Preheat oven to 375F. Line the muffin pan with cupcake liners.

In a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter and sugar and mix on low speed until just incorporated. Raise the speed to high and mix until light and fluffy, about 10 minutes. (Occasionally turn the mixer off, and scrape the sides of the bowl down with a rubber spatula.)

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and vanilla, and also set aside.

Add the egg yolks to the creamed butter one at time, waiting for each one to be fully incorporated before adding the next.

Reduce the speed of the mixer to low. Alternately, add the flour mixture in 3 additions and the milk in 2 additions, waiting for each to be fully incorporated before adding the next (scrape the bowl down occasionally). Raise the speed to medium and mix briefly until a smooth batter is formed. Transfer the batter to a large bowl.

In a medium bowl whisk the egg whites with a handheld mixer. Whip the egg whites on high speed, until stiff peaks are formed.

Working in 3 batches, using a rubber spatula, fold the egg whites into the batter, until just incorporated. Divide the batter evenly among the cups in the muffin pan. Bake, rotating the pan once, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

Poke cupcakes with a skewer and drizzle maple syrup over the top of each cupcake.

Allow cupcakes to cool before frosting.

Cook your back as desired.


Maple Syrup Cream Cheese Frosting

1 package (8oz) cream cheese, room temperature

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

4 cups confectioners sugar

1/4 cup maple syrup

milk, as needed to receive desired consistency

Cream butter and cream cheese in a standing bowl mixer with the paddle attachment for 2 minutes.

Slowly add 2 cups of confectioners sugar to the mixer.

Add maple syrup.

Add the remaining 2 cups of confectioners sugar to the mixer.

Add milk if necessary to achieve desired consistency.

Pipe frosting with a large pastry tip.

Cut each slice of bacon in half.  Add a piece of bacon to the top of each cupcake

Thanks, Jem2131! I tweaked a pancake muffin with maple and bacon and it's a big hit so I thought perhaps a French toast one would be, too.
