Maple Glazed Pound Cake & Candied Bacon Pecans

Maple Glazed Pound Cake & Candied Bacon Pecans,   A play on the classic combination of pancakes and bacon, this pound cake can be enjoyed as a breakfast or dessert. My first thought was that it might be too sweet, but it works because the pound cake is buttery and not sweet. Plus, when you add bacon to a sweet dish it brings another level of flavor. I remember the first time I heard that people were putting bacon on a donut, at first it was weird to me. Then, I started thinking about how well bacon goes with pancakes , drizzle a little extra syrup on it and YUM. So, why not?

Don’t forget, The addition of pecans adds a nice crunch and nutty flavor. This is sure to be a favorite at your next brunch!
