Step 1

1. Preheat oven to 375 dF. Line 2 (12-cup) muffin tins with cupcake liners. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. (or bake in oven - my favorite method). Drain, crumble, set aside.
2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, 3/4 cup of cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in eggs, coffee, buttermilk, and oil. Stir just until blended. Batter will be thin. Mix in 3/4 cup bacon, reserving the rest for garnish. Spoon batter into prepared cups, dividing evenly.
3. Bake in preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20-25 minutes. Cool in pan set over a wire rack. When cool, arrange cupcakes on a serving platter. Frost with your favorite chocolate frosting and sprinkle reserved bacon crumbles on top. Dust with remaining 1 tbsp. cocoa powder.
