Maple Ginger Cupcakes – Gluten Free

Now that Christmas Holidays are over Maple Ginger Cupcakes provide a delicious dessert option.  They are moist cupcakes loaded with maple syrup and a hint of ginger.  

The first thing I did was to finely chop some crystallized ginger and set it aside.

Then I dumped some margarine and lightly packed brown sugar into a large mixing bowl.

Using an electric hand mixer I beat them together until they were light and fluffy.

Then I added some pure maple syrup and a bit of fancy molasses to the bowl.

I used the electric hand mixer again to beat the mixture until it was light and fluffy.

Next I added in 2 eggs.

I beat the eggs into the batter until the mixture was again light and fluffy.

Now I dumped in some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, meringue powder, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, ginger and salt.

I used a large wooden spoon to stir the dry ingredients into the wet batter in the bowl.

After the ingredients were blended I mixed baking soda into some boiling water and then poured the water into the batter.  I stirred quickly.

Next I dumped in half of the prepared crystallized ginger that I had set aside.

I stirred in the ginger before scooping the batter into paper lined muffin tins.  I filled the tins about 3/4 full.

Then I put the muffin tins into a 350F oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of the cupcakes came out clean.

After allowing them to cool a few minutes in the pan I flipped them onto their sides to finish cooling.

Once completely cooled I frosted them with Betty Crocker White Frosting to which I had added some chopped crystallized ginger.

If desired you could garnsih them with crystallized ginger pieces as well.

Maple Ginger Cupcakes are a moist, flavourful treat that will be devoured quickly by any foodies in your home.
