Emma aime in the Kitchen: Ginger Cupcakes

The hubby and my nephew were cooking up a storm in the kitchen last week trying to perfect the recipe for ginger cake as they are making one for my brother in laws 40th birthday. The cupcakes they made were really yummy so after consulting the hubby he agreed to share his recipe.

175g vegetable oil
175g brown sugar
3 eggs
280 self raising flour
1/2 tsp ground ginger
75g fresh root ginger finely grated
2 tbs treacle
50g crystallised ginger finely diced

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius
Whisk the oil with the sugar
Slowly add the eggs allowing the mixture to combine
Sieve the flour and ground ginger together
Fold the flour through the mixture gently and then fold the crystallised and root ginger through
Add the treacle and mix gently throughout the whole mixture until it is an even colour
Put into cupcake papers and place them in a muffin tray so the batter keeps shape.
Bake at 180 for roughly 12 - 15 minutes
