Bakin’ With The Bacon King


Happy Mother’s Day to All Moms Including the ROYAL MOM!!!!

We know it’s a DAY early but that’s as close as we could get to this pawsome day of the year when we celebrate MOMS.     I thought this would be a perfect and yummy breakfast surprise to make the Mom in the house for Mother’s Day.   It’s got everything.   All it needs is a nice card and a bouquet of flowers to accompany it on the breakfast table when you surprise the Mom in your household with this delicious concoction!





  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cold butter
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and salt. Cut in butter until crumbly. Set aside 1/2 cup for topping. Combine the baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg; stir into remaining flour mixture.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, buttermilk, syrup and applesauce until well blended. Gradually stir into flour mixture until combined.
  • Spread into a 13×9 inch baking pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with reserved topping, then bacon and walnuts. Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

Now doesn’t that sound absolutely SCRUMMY?   (I heard someone say that on a British mystery program the other day – short for scrumptious!).

Now don’t forget to give your Mom a hug tomorrow on “HER” day……..if your Mom is an Angel like my Mom’s Mom, send a hug up to her on angel wings – she knows you love her always but will appreciate the special thought on Mother’s Day of all days.

  1. Happy Mother’s Day to your mom, Teddy. It was in March in the UK. That sounds like a tasty recipe and one that I wouldn’t need to add the bacon.


  2. Sounds so good. Son bought a Mother’s Day cake. I can’t wait to eat it. That liquid diet was awful. LOL. Have a great day.


  3. Oh TEDDY! What a Chef you are! Who would not love sitting down to a plateful of THIS!
    Happy Mom’s Day to your momma. Aren’t we blessed to be so loved and cared for by our mom’s.?


  4. Mom loves a tasty piece of coffee cake with a hot cuppa tea or coffee. We think she should try making this one so we can have some bacon:)

  5. WOW! That is SCRUMMY! We think we should make it, except the kitchen in total disarray! It has not had any paint since the sliding doors were put in 25 years ago. Mom is tired of the inside of the cabinets being dusty rose and the ceiling still has jam spashes from when she was Beary Good Stuff, so there will be no extra special yummy goodness for quite a few weeks (Mom is old, it takes her time to do stuff). BUT this recipe has been printed and WILL be made upon completion of the painting.


  6. Mom wishes we had made this for her for Mother’s Day. We told her if she behaves herself this week, we will consider making it for her next weekend. We think this is a definite winner.
