First try at the cupcakes was a monumental fail. I have no idea why they got all fluffy, then flopped. I follwed the recipe the same way both times and got completely different results. It's magic. Or something.
The second time, they turned out to be lovely little cupcakes with a decent crumb and a good flavor. I don't know how I did it.
And here they are, frosted and garnished with a bit of bacon. And oh my do they taste good! Think of a pancake breakfast. Think how good the bacon tastes where the maple syrup dribbles on it. Think of that taste in a cupcake. Think of a good excuse to ask me to bring a batch over to your house.
