This gingerbread cupcake recipe is perfect for holiday baking. A delicious old recipe that is dense, moist, rich in flavor that will melt your heart.
This year I decided to delve deeper into my collection of coveted antique cookbooks. If you don’t already know this about me, I adore antiquing and it seems that each time I go out on a venture, I come home with one or two beloved antique cookbooks.
I simply adore traveling back into time, with each turn of an aged, stained page, to devour recipes of long ago. Times were simpler. Life was anchored in the kitchen, guests were greeted with old fashioned hospitality, entertained with favorite family recipes and then left with satisfied hearts and bellies. This year I decided to pick a few recipes to experiment with and share them with family and friends. The ginger tea cakes caught my eye and I knew in an instant that they would be just perfect for the holidays.
My mom and dad gushed with delight as they sampled the gingerbread cupcakes that tasted spot on to their favorite childhood gingerbread cake from a local grocery store. Nothing could have pleased me more. I knew this gingerbread cupcake recipe was a success.
Gingerbread cupcakes. A warm and spicy, slightly sweet dense cake that has stood the test of time. Doesn’t get any more divine than that for the holidays, does it?
