Gingerbread Cupcakes Recipe

When it comes to Christmas and baking, one of the only things I think of is Gingerbread and as we're now in September, I think its acceptable to start thinking about the festive time of year! I'm not too brilliant at Gingerbread men so I wanted to have a go at cupcakes instead and they turned out so well! These were such a cute size and tasted delicious.
150g butter
150g brown sugar
 2 eggs
150g self raising flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger

1. Pre - heat you oven to 180 degrees
2. In a bowl, mix together the butter and sugar until you get a creamy mixture
3. Add your flour a little bit at a time, folding it in, add the cinnamon and ginger and mix
4. Add your eggs one at a time, mixing after each one. If you find your mixture is quite sticky you can add a little bit of milk here
5. Line a muffin/cupcake tin with bun cases and add about a tablespoon of the mixture to each one 
6. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes then leave to cool on a wire rack

The first time I made these I didn't actually do a frosting as I just didn't have the ingredients or the time, they were still delicious though! The second time I just made a simple vanilla buttercream. I did attempt to pipe the buttercream on top but then the bag broke so that didn't go to plan. I just used a tsp to spread some on and I think they look pretty cute!

I can't wait to make these again. These are going to be perfect for Autumn. Let me know if you give them a go!
