  • Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels.

  • Mix flour, white sugar, cocoa powder, xanthan gum, baking soda, baking powder, and sea salt together in a bowl. Beat coffee, buttermilk, eggs, canola oil, and 1 fluid ounce whiskey together in a separate large bowl. Slowly mix dry ingredients into wet until combined into a batter.

  • Crumble approximately half of the cooked bacon into the batter and stir; divide batter evenly between the lined muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

  • Beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and 1 fluid ounce whiskey together in a small bowl; spread over the top of the cooled cupcakes. Crumble remaining bacon and sprinkle over the frosted cupcakes.

The only good thing was they were fluffy and moist! I would use this for a chocolate cupcake omitting whiskey and bacon adding a bit more sugar. Where did the 5 stars come from! Read More

Always check your GF flour mix. Many now come with xanthan gum mixed in. You won't need extra if so. The big problem with the recipe is the frosting. With an ounce of whiskey and only one cup of sugar you won't have frosting you'll have soup. Cream cheese frosting is usually 3 to 4 cups of powdered sugar not one. If you try and frost your cupcakes with the frosting as described you'll get goo that runs off the top of the cake. Keep adding sugar until your frosting firms up. (between 3 and 4 cups) Read More
