Recipe Box, Blueberry & Bacon Breakfast Bundt

This is a reinvention of a recipe I posted a long time ago,

Blueberry Bacon Breakfast Cake

I decided to make it in a bundt pan and add maple syrup


You probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry

Flour, white and brown sugars, baking powder {not pictured,}

eggs, butter, cinnamon, vanilla, maple syrup

milk, blueberries and bacon

Mix the dry and wet ingredients separately,

then combine and stir in the bacon and blueberries

Coating the blueberries with flour

prevents them from all sinking down to the bottom

Grease or spray your pan* thoroughly right before adding the batter

Bake for 30 minutes and test for doneness,

and continue baking until cake tester comes out clean

My cake took 45 minutes but time can vary due to oven and pan used

Let cake cool for 1-3 hours, then poke all over and drizzle with syrup

Let cake sit a while longer to absorb syrup before turning it out onto a plate

Make icing by beating cream cheese with sugar, milk and vanilla

Spread over cooled cake and garnish with blueberries

*After a sticking issue I had with the Italian Party Bread

I ordered a silicone bundt pan

I highly recommend it, this cake slid out like a dream!

    I would never have thought of putting bacon in a breakfast cake, but I bet it was good. Bundt pans have been problematic at our house too. I will be sharing this idea with my chef (husband); I know he will like it.
