Author: Stacey Little | Southern Bite


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (3.5-ounce) package chopped real bacon (or about 8 to 10 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled)
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F and lightly spray a 12-well muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.  
  • In a large bowl, stir ingredients together until just combined - do not over mix.  Divide the batter evenly into the prepared pan.  Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until cooked though.  


To make these look pretty, I saved out about a tablespoon of bacon and a few tablespoons of cheese and sprinkled it on top of the batter once I scooped it in into the muffin pan right before baking.
