They *taste* great, but I'm trying to figure out what went wrong here.

The cupcakes are rebelling. They want to take over your oven, then the world.

There ya go - cup cakes. Cut them out individually for cup-shaped cakes. Someone's finally sticking to the product description...

i had the same thought as sprocket! fill the holes with something shockingly creamy and unhealthy!

Guys.

They're maple-bacon.

Yes. They're maple bacon cupcakes. I swear.

I have already offered to put an egg in the cup. Complete breakfast.

DAMN but they taste good, though.

Gael says:

that sounds delicious!
I had the *best* eggs benedict for breakfast myself today : )

bronxelf says:

I LOVE eggs benedict. It's one of my favorite foods, period.

These are really tasty. Just a bit sticky. Tryng to figure out what went wrong so I can fix it for next time.

Gael says:

They got it spot on, this time. Usely too much vinegar/lemon juice
Have you a recipe for the maple/bacon pleae?

10th Jun 2007, 15:04

bronxelf says:

yes. but not in metric. Can you do the conversion okay?


I am thinking of springboarding these into bacon/cheese muffins. Stand by for new photo.

Gael says:

Yes, no probs - cups or whatever is fine. Thank you

Hopefully yours are more successful.

Vanilla Garlic has a wealth of muffin recipes, doesn't it? If you've posted the link before, I've missed it. But I have a healthy rhubarb crop and I see he has several rhubarb muffins to try.

Yes, he's one of the many food blogs I read regularly. :)

yummy...never made cupcakes...

10th Jun 2007, 18:12

bronxelf says:

I think I've been making too many lately. :)

I tried making eggs benedict the otgher week, it was a shocking disaster.

11th Jun 2007, 15:19

bronxelf says:

What part went wrong?

11th Jun 2007, 15:20

seaneeboy says:

The hollondaise, of course. I didn't do the eggs bit at the start right, and it just wouldn't emulsify - I know exactly what to do better next time, but it still sucked :)

12th Jun 2007, 10:44

seaneeboy says:

it looked similar to when you mix bailies and lime - eww!

12th Jun 2007, 10:44

bronxelf says:

Oh, it broke? You can fix that you know. A broken hollandaise can be fixed on the fly.

12th Jun 2007, 11:01

seaneeboy says:

Splash of cold water, isn't it? made no difference, this was just from a bad start - still, It'll be fine next time!

12th Jun 2007, 11:04

bronxelf says:

Usually it's an additional egg yolk. Whip it in advance and add is slowly. You might want to add some additional lemon juice as well but that usually fix it straight on.

12th Jun 2007, 11:47

seaneeboy says:

Oooh, ta for the tips :)

13th Jun 2007, 09:54

bronxelf says:

No problem. I hate wasting hollandaise- you blow so many eggs, and it's not that hard to repair.

Euphro (NLI) says:

I've never seen that happen before, but then I have not been involved in extreem/experimental cupcake manufacture.

From the thumbnail I thopght it was a macro close up of the base of a waffle :)

I think that you may be on to something interesting - I love the ant-cupcake/anti-muffin idea :DI

bronxelf says:

Well now that we think we know what caused it, we can replicate it.
