  • 6 strips bacon maple flavored if you can find it
  • 2 cups white all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoon baking powder double acting
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1-¼ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter melted and cooled. If using unsalted butter, increase salt to 1 teaspoon
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract
  • 1 egg brought to room temperature and beaten


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C). Grease and flour a large 6-cup jumbo muffin pan or you can line it with large paper liners. Set aside.
  • Line a microwave-safe plate with a paper towel. Place bacon strips on plate. Cover with a second paper towel and microwave on high for 4-6 minutes. Check at 4 minutes. Bacon should be lightly crispy. Cook longer if necessary, no longer than 6 minutes. Set aside.
  • Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda into a medium mixing bowl.
  • Add milk, butter, maple extract and beaten egg. Stir until combined. Do not overmix. Rough chop and stir in bacon until well-distributed.
  • Divide batter evenly for 6 muffins into your prepared muffin pan. Each well should be about ¾ full. If using double acting baking powder, allow to rest for 5-10 minutes to allow the baking powder to start working. If using single acting baking powder, bake your muffins right away.
    Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
