So my husband's birthday was yesterday and I decided to make Pancake Cupcakes stuffed with Bacon topped with Fresh Whipped Cream!
Prepare the bacon the way you normally would - making sure the pieces are crispy. Cool on wire rack and crumble the pieces.
Make the pancake mix the way you would normally prepare them. However, I added maple syrup to the batter to try and get that flavor baked into the cupcake.
Prepare the cupcake pan with liners.
Fill the cupcakes only half the way up. Then put pieces of the cooked bacon in the middle of the batter.
Put more batter on top of the bacon (please ignore the mess).
Let the cupcakes cook till they are cooked through on 350F.
Cool the mixing bowl
1 cup of heavy cream
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of confectioners sugar
Mix until soft peaks form (don't over mix).
When the pancakes come out of the oven top with butter. However let the cupcakes cool before you add the whipped cream otherwise the cream will melt (like it did for me!).
Of course you can stuff the pancakes with whatever ingredients you wish.
