Here is the recipe for those of you who want to venture into this new baking arena. Cupcakes for breakfast. I guarantee you will be the queen/king of the day to whomever you give these cupcakes to. These may just be my current favorite cupcakes!

French Toast Cupcakes

1 box white cake mix
3 eggs
1 cup half and half
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnmamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
Maple Buttercream frosting
Cooked bacon, in 2″ strips or crumbles

Mix together cake mix, eggs, half and half, vanilla, and spices. Beat batter until well combined. Do not over mix.

Scoop batter into paper liners filling ¾ full. Batter will be thick. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until cupcakes are slightly golden around the edge. Remove cupcakes from the oven and cool completely. Frost with maple buttercream frosting. Top with 2 small strips of bacon, or bacon crumbles.

Maple Buttercream frosting

1 ½ teaspoons maple flavoring
2 sticks butter
3 tablespoons cream, or more if needed
1 lb. Powdered sugar

In a large mixer, add maple flavoring, butter and cream, beating on medium until smooth. Stop mixer and add ½ of the powdered sugar. Starting mixer on low speed, until powdered sugar is incorporated. Stop mixer and add remaining powdered sugar until desired texture. You may add more cream if needed, 1 tablespoon at a time. Frost cooled cupcakes.
