  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon; set aside.
  • 3
    In large bowl, beat butter with electric mixer on medium speed 30 seconds. Gradually add sugar, about 1/4 cup at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping bowl occasionally. Beat 2 minutes longer. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in maple syrup and vanilla. On low speed, alternately add flour mixture, about 1/3 of mixture at a time, and milk, about 1/2 at a time, beating just until blended. Stir bacon into batter.
  • 4
    Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
  • 5
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans; place on cooling racks to cool.
  • 6
    Use one can of Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy Vanilla Frosting. Frost cupcakes to look like the white of a sunnyside-up egg. For yolk, press 1 butterscotch candy in center of each cupcake. Sprinkle with black decorator sugar for pepper.

Expert Tips

  • Short on time? Use a container of vanilla creamy ready to spread frosting instead of the Buttercream frosting.
  • Substitute 1 box white cake mix for the cupcakes above. Make cake mix as directed on box for cupcakes except—use 1 cup water, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, 3 egg whites and 2 tablespoons maple-flavored syrup. Stir in 3/4 cup crisply cooked and finely crumbled maple-flavored bacon (9 slices). Bake 15 to 22 minutes. Cool as directed on box. For the frosting, substitute 1 container vanilla creamy ready-to-spread frosting. Decorate as directed in recipe.
