I love making these for fall or Halloween … They are delicious topped with any icing, but I especially love it combined with cream cheese frosting (find my recipe in my TastyKitchen recipe box).
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line muffin tin(s) with paper cupcake liners. Recipe makes 12-15 cupcakes.
In a medium sized bowl sift together flour and spices. Set aside.
In a large bowl using an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar on high speed, until pale and fluffy. Add the molasses and mix until combined. Add the eggs, mixing until all are incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl if needed. Add vanilla and mix. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until just incorporated.
Divide batter evenly among cupcake liners, filling about 3/4 of the way full in each. Bake about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cupcakes cool for 10 minutes then remove from muffin tin. Cool completely before frosting.
To me, nothing beats an old-fashioned red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting. Well, unless it’s a slice of cake of the same! Moist, deep in flavors, slightly sweet and topped with an incredible frosting!
For those dark chocolate lovers out there, this is definitely a dessert that you need to try. I’ve never tasted anything like this cake recipe; it’s like biting into a soft chocolate bar. It is rich and full of dark chocolate flavor. Makes about 18 cupcakes.
