Bakin’ with Bacon With King Teddy

Standard

Greetings loyal subjects of the land of Baconia – where BACON RULES (and so do I!)

I’ve got another ridiculously easy recipe for you this week………….probably too easy in some ways.    I think some of you like a challenge – lots of ingredients and steps and this has neither.    It’s just a very tasty bacon/apple muffin that is GREAT for breakfast.   Breakfast is the most important meal of the day you know so it needs to be GOOD.     THESE ARE GOOD.

Apple-Bacon Muffins

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped apple  (doesn’t matter what kind of apple)
  • 1/2 cup diced bacon

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Heat the oven to 375 F.

  2. Spray muffin cups with nonstick baking spray or cooking spray.

  3. In a large mixing bowl with electric mixer, cream butter and brown sugar until light. Beat in the eggs until well blended.

  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon; stir or whisk to blend thoroughly.

  5. Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, alternating with the milk. Stir just until blended. Fold in the apple and bacon until blended.

  6. Immediately spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan, filling the cups about three-quarters full.

  7. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, until lightly browned.

  8. Cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then remove to a rack to cool completely.

Makes 12 to 15 muffins.

See?   Easy Peasy……..and before you ask me – of course you can put more bacon in and for that matter more apple if you want.    More apple will make your muffins a little more moist but so what.   

Bacon does make everything better – that’s why we are all so glad to live in the land of Baconia where bacon is abundant and Moms are hypnotized into making things WITH bacon so there’s more of a chance WE can have some!   

See you next Saturday for another baconized recipe!   

Teddy, KING OF BACONIA

  1. Bacon and apples go well together and that does sound tasty. But……oh no, there is no bacon in the fridge!!!!! We had a bacon sandwich each for lunch yesterday so we are baconless until I go shopping next week. 😦

  2. Mom says she’s pretty certain she wouldn’t be able to wait for these to cool, and she’s thinking a warm muffin with butter melting into it would be yummers. Thanks for another great recipe. Love to all. XOCK, Kitties Blue
