    Gingerbread Cupcakes Baked Last Night --- New Recipe

    Recipe Gingerbread Cupcakes

    "A wonderful change of pace for the holiday season. Moist and spicy cake balanced by creamy, soft frosting."

    INGREDIENTS:
    5 tablespoons unsalted butter,
    softened
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup unsulfured molasses
    1 egg
    1 egg yolk
    1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon Dutch process
    cocoa powder
    1 1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 cup hot milk
    Cream Cheese Frosting

    DIRECTIONS:
    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter or line with paper liners a 12-cup muffin tin.
    2. Cream 5 tablespoons of the butter with the white sugar. Add the molasses and the egg and egg yolk.
    3. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and salt. Dissolve the baking soda in the hot milk. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until just combined. Stir in the hot milk mixture. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared tin.
    4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 minutes or until slightly springy to the touch. Allow to cool a few minutes. Frost when completely cool.
