Gingerbread is a staple flavor of the holiday season. The tangy bitters of the ginger seem to perfectly complement so many dishes! What I have always wondered is why gingerbread flavor is not being used year round? At least it seems that way – every time I want to make something gingerbread-y in the middle of the summer, people give me that funny look. You know what I mean, don’t you? Well, I’m on a mission to change that. Why not make gingerbread the flavor of the whole year? And why not take it a step further with a dash of creamy cinnamon?
Since these cupcakes are a little smaller than normal, the recipe yields 24. These would make a great treat for your child’s classroom or make you tons of friends at the office… or you could stash them yourself!!! Whatever it’ll be, this dessert is packed with some super delicious flavors.
