Buttermilk Spice Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream

Buttermilk Spice Cake
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 6 tbsp butter, room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 3 tbsp honey
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin pan with baking liners.
  2. Cream butter and brown sugar. Add egg and honey.
  3. Sift all dry ingredients. Add to creamed mixture.
  4. Slowly add buttermilk.
  5. Spoon into baking cups, filling 2/3 full.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
I used the Vanilla Buttercream recipe from below. I also sprinkled cinnamon on top. These are super yummy. Although, I think cream cheese frosting would have been better but I didn't have any cream cheese today. Maybe next time... Tomorrow I think I am going to try a caramel cupcake with caramel buttercream.
