...w/ a Side of Bacon

So I'm in this Bible study....

We meet every Wednesday morning. We study the Bible. We eat bacon.

I don't know exactly how it happened, but we all came together based on our shared love of Jesus Christ and one of his greatest creations....pork fat.

We've sort of become obsessed with bacon. We've made Bacon Brownies (more than once), Bacon Buttercream Frosting, Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes, Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies and Chocolate Bacon Cookies. There are rumors of Bacon laced Rice Krispie Treats in our future too.

If you don't believe me when I say that we are serious about our bacon just search for our group on Facebook. You'll find us under BS....Bible Study with a Side of Bacon. I'm not even kidding.

So when this month's Daring Baker's Challenge was a Meringue Coffeecake to be made with our own choice of fillings what else could I choose but bacon?

Yep. This is my Bacon Pecan Coffeecake and it is d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s if I do say so myself. The meringue gushing out of the edges looks a little weird, I'll admit, but it doesn't hurt the taste any.

The recipe was super easy and very versatile. I will say that it is much better fresh out of the oven than the next day but a quick nuke in the microwave and it revives pretty well. If you'd like to make your own pork flavored pastry you can find the recipe at

If nothing else just go check out the cool pics of all the different coffeecakes that everyone else made this month. And BS girls....I'll see you Wed. I'll be the one with the bacon. :)
