I love this time of year! Christmas time is so magical! This year even more so for me thanks to Jacob! Im looking forward to all things Christmas. Next week one of my best friends is hosting a Christmas party and requested I bring gingerbread cupcakes. Not wanting to disappoint I did my research, combined and tweaked some recipes and came up with these moist, delicious cupcakes featuring Epicure’s gingerbread spice!
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 molasses
- 1 egg
- 1 1/3 cups white flour
- 1 teaspoon real vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 2 teaspoons Epicure Gingerbread spice
*Allow milk, butter, and egg to come to room temperature before beginning
Cream butter and sugar together in mixer. Add in egg, milk and vanilla.
Add in molasses. Mixture will look chunky.
In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and Epicure gingerbread spice.
With mixer running at low speed add dry ingredient mixture to wet. Once added mix throughly on med/high speed for 30 seconds. Use a spatula to scrape down sides and mix for another 10 seconds.
Fill 12 paper lined muffin tins 2/3 full.
Bake for 20 minutes in preheated oven – 350 degrees.
Allow to cool on wire rack before frosting.
I frosted mine with cream cheese frosting and used a tiny fresh baked gingerbread man to decorate!
I hope you enjoy these as much as my friends do! ❤️🎄❤️
So cute!! Well done :))
