I made this for a friend who has a deep love for bacon. It reminds me a lot of pancakes and bacon.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch round cake pan.
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet; cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until lightly browned but still soft, about 7 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Place the bacon on the bottom of the greased cake pan, overlapping slices as necessary to fit. Sprinkle the bacon strips with the brown sugar.
  3. Combine the prepared cake batter, maple extract, and maple syrup in a large bowl, mixing well. Pour the batter over the brown sugar and bacon in the cake pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 15-20 minutes. Cool cake slightly and remove from pan by inverting onto a serving platter. Cut into wedges to serve.

I took another reviewers suggestion and cut the bacon into bits and fried it, before adding it to the bottom of the baking pan. I also used a box of yellow Jiffy cake mix, because the store I went to was out of white. My kids loved this. Cake for breakfast? Heck yeah. There were NO leftovers. I had made eggs on the side and this meal was reminiscent of McDonald's McGriddles. I'll make this again. I served this with homemade pancake syrup, also from this site. NOTE: Butter or grease the heck out of your pan. Otherwise, you aren't getting that cake out, no sir.

I won best dessert at Bacon Fest at work! I did do what another review suggested and cut the bacon up in little pieces instead of the strips. I also subbed 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract + 1/2 tsp cin. extract for the maple extract (didn't have any). The cake by itself was excellent as well, will be using that for a future recipe this fall :)

Not a make again receipe, sorry. If I were to make it again the bacon needs to be cooked longer and then crumbled. It was awful trying to cut the bacon and the cake so moist. The grandkids gave it a one star too.
