Blueberry Bacon Breakfast Cake. So… I did this.

Blueberry Bacon Breakfast Cake

Blueberries. Bacon. Together. For breakfast. In dessert form. I mean… I made a cake with bacon fat. We’re moving a little backwards here, what with dinner yesterday and breakfast today and then tomorrow… lunch. Ugh. The only thing that could make this whole blueberry bacon experience better was if I was eating it somewhere magical. Totally Team Pacey for life by the way. But this cake.

And here’s the kicker: Erin clearly had to prepare this entire thing for 30 people – the fritters, the fruit, the whipped cream and the syrup – at her HOME, waaaaay before the contest began, and it was still fabulous.

But I don’t know anyone who’d do that. Anyhoo – while the combination of all four parts totally makes the dish, just trying the fritters, or the whipped cream on something crazy, or the syrup poured directly into your mouth is a wise idea. Jalapeno Whipped Cream 1 cup heavy cream 2 jalapenos (1 seeded, 1 not), cut in half 1 tablespoon powdered sugar Brown Sugar Tequila Syrup 3/4 cup loosely packed brown sugar.
