Pancakes and Bacon Cake

This is such a fun recipe. I’ve had pancakes and bacon cupcakes at some of my favorite bakeries and this cake has the same delicious flavors! I had to come home and create my own version! Wait until you sink your teeth into the maple buttercream. To die for with those bacon chunks on top.

How to Make This Bacon Cake

Let’s start with the cake mix.

Your pudding mix.

4 lovely eggs. It was so fun having my mom help with this recipe. Two sets of hands make a world of difference!

Milk and oil.

Sour cream and maple syrup. Mmmm!

Give her a good mix!

Crisp up some bacon. I use the pre-cooked strips. Quick and easy.

Add your crumbled bacon.

Give her another mix!

Time to pour into your loaf pans.

Spread evenly and time to bake!

While your cakes are baking, prepare your frosting. A very simple maple buttercream.

Divide over both cooled cakes, take a lick. It’s to die for!

Spread your maple buttercream evenly over top.

Here’s the fun part, top with crumbled bacon 🙂

Slice and enjoy!

Maple-y sweet and salty delicious.

    You’ve done it again! I love you Jenny of Picky-Palate. I made this for my department this morning and of 27 people, no one was disappointed. I loved going to bed with the smell of bacon and waking up to put the finishing touches on it (again, more bacon aroma). It was divine!

    When I first saw the photo of the finished product and read the title of the recipe, I thought: “She’s got to be kidding!” Now that I’ve read the details, I’m thinking: “She may be a genius replicating this dish!”
