Winter time and the most amazing warming ingredients are here for us to use. I myself enjoy a nice variety of ginger creations, they tend to put me in the mood for the cold season. Of the best things that I think ginger goes into, I believe desserts are the best, so today I will share with you a simple recipe to make the loveliest ginger cupcakes for everyone to enjoy.
To make these yummies you need:
- 1 1/2 Cups Flour
- 1 Tsp Of Baking Soda
- 1/2 Tsp Of Cinnamon
- 1/8 Tsp Of Nutmeg
- 1/2 Tsp Of Ground Ginger
- 1/2 Tsp Of Salt
- 1/2 Cup (1 stick of unsalted butter)
- 1/4 Cup Of Water
- 1 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 3 Large Eggs, Room Temperature
- 1/4 Cup Of Grated Ginger
Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a small bowl, melt the butter and water together (you can use the microwave but make sure you cover them with nylon wrap). Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda and dry spices in a bowl. Beat together the brown sugar until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, as you are beating them. Beat in the flour mixture slowly until just incorporated. Add the butter mixture and the grated ginger and beat until smooth. The mixture will be quite runny so don’t worry about.
Spoon into cupcake papers, about 3/4 full. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for a minute to set before moving to a wire rack to fully cool.
These cupcakes can be topped with almost anything you want. Caramel is definitely a loved topping, lemon glaze, whipped cream and caramelized walnuts, so basically anything goes.
