Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Using the skillet, fry up the 6 pieces of bacon to your liking and then set aside to cool.
Line your cupcake pan with paper liners.
In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk well. Set aside.
Now in a second bowl, mix together with your electric mixer sugar and eggs beating until well combined.
Add the oil, whole milk, bacon fat, maple syrup and vanilla to another bowl, stir to mix.
Add this bowl of ingredients to the second bowl with sugar and eggs, again mixing well to combine.
Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients stirring just enough to blend all of the ingredients together.
Using a medium ice cream scoop fill each cupcake tin 2/3rds filled. Bake at 350 degrees for 16-18 minutes. Just stick a toothpick into the centre of your cupcake. If there is wet batter still on the toothpick, it needs more time in the oven. If it comes out clean, your cupcake is done.
Remove cupcakes from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes.
Next transfer to a wire rack allowing them to cool completely.
