Lemon Cream Cheese Gingerbread Cupcakes: These moist and spicy molasses gingerbread cupcakes are topped with a tangy lemon cream cheese frosting…a winning combo.
I love the flavors of gingerbread with citrus.
Gingerbread was one of those flavors I was not big on as a kid.
But boy as an adult do I love it.
These cupcakes use lemon powder.
It’s not something you are going to find everywhere so I buy mine online.
I use freeze dried (or powdered) fruit in many of my frosting recipes.
Really gives you the flavor but without making the frosting runny.
These cupcakes call for you to place the batter in the fridge overnight.
Don’t skip this.
If you skip it your cupcake sill not turn out.
And you want them to turn out because I do think these are the best gingerbread that I have tasted.
I went with a cream cheese frosting because who doesn’t love cream cheese frosting?
