Maple Bacon Upside Down Cake



Maple Bacon Upside Down Cake

Today I'm sharing a recipe I contributed a couple weeks ago at White Lights on Wednesday - even though it is not bacon month any more (did I hear a sigh?), I thought I would share again in case you missed it.  Also, speaking of WLOW, it is Julie's 2nd blog anniversary today!  Be sure to scroll to the bottom to enter a giveaway that some of us are helping her to celebrate with.

Hi, Deb again from Cooking on the Front Burner with a recipe dedicated to bacon month!  Did you know that August 31st is international bacon day?  I didn't until I read about it on Julie's post.  So when I was trying to decide on what to make for my semi-monthly dessert post, I thought why not try something with bacon.  Everyone likes bacon, right?? But what to make was the question....

I wasn't feeling too original in creating something myself... I didn't want to screw this up.  Waste not want not - that's my bacon motto!  So after some searching, this recipe appealed to me on many levels... bacon (duh), pecans and maple.... the combo of these flavors made for a tasty dessert.  I did make one change to the recipe - I made only half and instead of using a 9x9 pan, I used a individual brownie pan that has 12 slots.

See how cute these look and they make a great single serving (or eat two!).  These are best served warm but I did microwave some of the leftovers and that worked well too...

So how are you celebrating bacon month?  I'm partial to BLT's - with a fresh fat juicy tomato, 3 slices of super crisp bacon, garden leaf lettuce, toasted white bread and real mayo with fresh pepper and sea salt... my favorite sandwich that I only eat when fresh tomatoes are in season.

And for dessert... well, I'll have one of these:


Enjoy!!
