Maple Bacon Doughnut Muffins

After months of waiting, my book is finally available on Amazon. Which is equal parts thrilling and terrifying. I still have momentary panics that everyone will hate it, more of my previously mentioned Too Hard On Myself situation. In spite of the fleeting dread, I’m so grateful that I had this opportunity to work with a publisher that really believes in me and what I’m doing on The Beeroness.


The book is released on October 18th, just in time to make a fantastic holiday gift for the those hard to buy for beer lovers. Or for guys, they’re hard to shop for. But “here’s some beer, and a cookbook about beer!” isn’t so bad.

So to celebrate what has been firmly designated a “guys” cookbook (although I disagree, I might as well just go with it) I made some delicious cupcakes with “manly” ingredients. Although bacon is gender neutral, if you don’t agree just try and take a girls bacon and see how that goes for you.

IPA Ceviche Lettuce Wraps

Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 lb raw shrimp, diced
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • 1 manila mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, diced, seeds removed
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sriracha
  • 2/3 cup IPA beer
  • 4 heads endive
  • 1 head radicchio


  1. Place the shrimp in a small bowl. Cover with ½ cup lime juice and ½ cup lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate until the shrimp have turned pink, about 2 hours.
  2. In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients (except the radicchio and the endive), allow to marinate for at least one hour.
  3. Just prior to serving, drain the shrimp, add to the mango bowl and toss to combine.
  4. Scoop a few tablespoons of the ceviche into the leaves of the endive and the radicchio, serve chilled


For a lower heat level, reduce Sriracha to 1/4 or 1/2 tsp.

  1. I made some little donut muffins a month or so ago, not with cake flour though (or bacon) but I’d love to compare the texture with the cake flour vs. without. And that frosting with maple syrup in it…nice!

    And the ad i am seeing in your sidebar and the footer right now is from the Westin, Grand Cayman, Seven Mile Beach. I have actually been there, and it’s breathtaking. And these ads really make me want to go back. 🙂

  2. I promise you, no one in their right mind will hate your book. Everyone is going to love it and I cannot wait to get my little paws on it!! So excited!!
    Also pretty excited about these “man” doughnut muffins!! Maple bacon? Ah…. yes, please!!

  3. I’m drooling over these muffins. Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland does a bacon maple bar – it’s a classic and these make me think of it and home. Congratulations on the book!! I can’t wait to read it slash give it to everyone I know for Christmas. (Bam! Shopping = done. And in JULY! How awesome).

  4. yay, congrats on the cookbook finally being available on pre-release! I’m definitely getting one of those. And I disagree as well – this can be a girl’s cookbook. But I guess it’ll “sell more” if billed as a guy’s book, eh? 😉

    PS – these muffins look great! Love the touch with the drooped icing. Decadent!

  5. Love, love, love the cover of the book! I am ordering at least 2 copies-one for me and one for my friend who loves your stuff.
