We'll be giving this recipe out at my book signing parties in November. But since we're all scattered across the country I thought those of you who can't be part of the fun would enjoy having the recipe. Sooo, here is my Gingerbread Cupcake recipe.
2 3/4 cups cake flour 1/4 cup molasses
2 tsp baking powder 1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp salt 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp ginger 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
1/2 tsp cinnamon 2 eggs
1/2 tsp ground cloves 1 cup milk
Using mixer, cream together sugars, butter and molasses, then add in eggs. Once these are mixed, put dry ingredients in a sifter and add, alternating with milk, until everything is well mixed. Pour into lined cupcake tins and back at 350 for 20 minutes. Frost with lemon butter cream or cream cheese frosting.
Makes 20-22 medium sized cupcakes.
