Sticky Cinnamon and Maple Syrup Buns

Sticky Cinnamon and Maple Syrup Buns

 

This delicious Sticky Cinnamon and Maple Syrup Buns are a direct rip from the GoodFood Website and can be found here.  I have made a few tweaks but otherwise they are based on this recipe solely.  A delicious indulgent treat with a hearty American twist of sweet maple syrup, these are definitely a one-off when you see the calorie content!  However I am a firm believer in making the most of the good things in life…and that usually focuses around the topic of food but everything in moderation and one of these little beauties will keep your sweet tooth and tummies happy for a fair while!

Maple, Pecan & Bacon Cupcakes!!!!

Maple, Pecan & Bacon Cupcakes – TASTE ALERT!!!

This recipe came in a dream…I jest but you get the gist.  I love bacon, I love maple syrup and pecans go well with both so it only seemed to make sense for this concoction to come about. Equally I scoured the web for a fair while and couldn’t find anything like this which left me with a challenge!  These are delicious because of the contrasting flavours which marry so well together, what’s more they really feel like a treat and always get a great reaction.  Feel free to mess around with the recipe, suggest any changes or shamelessly devour an entire batch…Happy Baking Bacon-ettes!

So there we are watching Diner’s Drive-In’s and Dives on the Food Network channel and on the screen appears a Crepe special based in a wonderful little American diner.  Guy Fieri is there chatting away to the chef (heavily tattooed and alternative :) )when they exclaim their special is a 21 Layer Crepe Pie!  Grant and I were fixed to the TV and made a mental note of the process…our own little twist can be seen with instructions below!
