Who doesn’t love bacon (even some vegetarians, I am told)? I recently came across The Bacon Book, an e-cookbook that has recipes from a few fellow bloggers. And of course all the recipes contain bacon, some savoury and some sweet.
When I saw a recipe for Caramel Bacon Brownies, I knew I had to give it a go. I had previously made Bacon Chocolate Chop cookies, which weren’t a huge hit I have to be honest. And the bacon flavoured chocolate bar I had from Dylan’s Candy Bar recently was something of an acquired taste. But I wanted to persevere with this fad for baking with bacon!
The recipe was from Stephsbitebybite.com. I have to be honest and say I found some of the measurements way off – I used a third of the cream recommended in the recipe and still had a whole jar of caramel bacon sauce left over (not a bad thing)! I also cut the recommended baking time down to 30 minutes – any longer and they would have burned. I used bacon lardons instead of bacon slices and used my own brownie recipe. So we can probably say my brownies were inspired by Steph’s.
