Gingerbread dreaming

By Christy - December 01, 2008

Christmas is on it's way! Welcome the holiday season with a batch of warm, fragrant Gingerbread Cupcakes!

Gingerbread Cupcakes


1 cup cake flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ginger powder (I use thai galangal powder)
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
90 g butter, softened
1/4 cup milk (optional)
2 tablespoons dark molasses
1/4 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 330 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 12 muffin pan with cupcake papers. Sift the cake flour together with the baking soda, ginger powder, nutmeg and cinnamon into a large bowl . Add the remaining ingredients. Meanwhile, cream the butter with egg and sugar. Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Combine well.

Divide mixture into cupcake cases. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Yield: 1 dozen cupcakes
