Maple Bacon Muffins

"Maple and bacon—my two favorite breakfast flavors—are combined in these grab-and-go muffins," writes Trisha Kruse of Boise, Idaho. "They're quick to fix, especially if you use your microwave to cook the bacon."

    I made these today for the first time and my girls, 13 & 10 loved them! Quickly gave them a new name, Pancake Muffins!

    I followed the recipe to the letter and what baked up was absolutely inedible. I just can't figure out what went wrong. I had to toss the whole batch and couldn't stomach finishing even one. :( Sounded like it had a lot of promise.

    My husband liked this muffins. However, he said it needed something else to make them really good. They were sweeter than I thought they were doing to be. Also, they were rather dry.

    I just made these today for a meeting I have tomorrow - glad I did - I thought they really did not taste well and yes I do think 3 teaspoons of baking powder is too much - I will not make these again.

    why would you use 3 teaspoons of baking powder? That sounds like way to much to me.
