Ingredients
For the cupcakes:
  • 1¼ c. flour
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • ½ t. salt
  • ½ c. butter, softened
  • ⅔ c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • ¼ c. milk
  • 3 T. maple syrup
  • 4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
For the frosting:
  • 1 c. butter (2 sticks) softened
  • 3-4 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 T. vanilla
  • 2-3 T. milk
For the decoration:
  • 2 T. poppyseeds
  • 12 butterscotch candies
Instructions

  2. Line a muffin tin with 12 cupcake liners. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar. Add in the eggs and mix well. Stir in the vanilla.
