Bacon with maple syrup just might be the first, and most classic, salty-sweet brunch combo. Throw in some butter and pancakes and you’ve got a breakfast worth craving every single day until the end of time. 

These cupcakes are basically pancakes, baked up in a different shape. It’s truly a pancake miracle! It’s not easy to bring pancakes on the road, but this cupcake version makes them a portable breakfast dream. Eat one right away and chill the rest to share (if you want to). Serve them up at your next brunch party, or simply make a batch for the pancake-lovers in your life!
