Spice cupcakes with White Chocolate Cream Cheese frosting

I wanted to make some holiday inspired cupcakes for the potluck we were going to. As usual, I may have overdone it a bit… I ended up taking two kinds of cupcakes and two kinds of cookies to take with us. I took some of the Peppermint Chocolate Meringue cookies and the Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies as well as the two kinds of cupcakes.

The first cupcake I chose is the Spice cupcake that was one of my first blog posts. I made them in July last year and they reminded Hubby and I so much of Christmas just because of the scent. This time I paired it with some great white chocolate cream cheese frosting. I decorated with some holiday sprinkles.

I’m also going to submit these for Cupcake Hero. The theme is White Chocolate and submissions are due by the end of January. I did make two versions of white chocolate mocha cupcakes for last January’s Cupcake Hero as well (the theme back then was coffee). I am hoping to make at least one more submission before the deadline arrives. Be sure to check out the Cupcake Hero site for the other entries.

Spice Cupcakes -from Crazy about Cupcakes – makes 12
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup boiling water
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat over to 350F. Insert liners into a medium cupcake pan.

In a small bowl combine the molasses and boiling water. Set aside.

In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy, 3-5 minutes. Add the egg to the creamed mixture. Beat well.

In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients.

Beat the flour mixture into the creamed mixture, alternating with the molasses mixture. Beat well after each addition.

Fill the cupcake liners three-quarters full. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of cupcakes comes out clean. Cool cupcakes in the pan.

    Wow… I’m not a cookie dough ice cream fan for the same reason, but this is amazing. How much do you think the coconut milk plays in the flavor?

    • beantownbaker — June 24th, 2013 @ 8:25 pm

      I personally don’t find coconut milk very coconuty. I know some people do. I think you could use the cow’s milk varieties in the recipe and it would taste similar. I just have to use the coconut milk since i can’t eat cow’s milk.

    I made this recipe from Tracey a couple of weeks ago too (I haven’t post about it yet) – so good!!!

    • beantownbaker — June 27th, 2013 @ 9:11 pm

      Isn’t it? It’s definitely one of my favorite ice cream recipes to date!

    This sounds delicious! I’m with you–regular cookie dough ice cream is a snooze. (Unless I’m sharing a pint with someone who doesn’t mind if I go through and pick out all the goodies–but let’s be real–everyone minds!) I’ll have to try this variation–it sounds like the perfect solution!

    • beantownbaker — June 28th, 2013 @ 7:17 am

      I agree completely – everyone does mind!

    Cookie dough ice cream is my favorite and this recipe makes me want to buy an ice cream maker immediately! Which kind do you recommend?

    • beantownbaker — July 6th, 2013 @ 11:09 am

      I have the ice cream maker attachment for my Kitchenaid mixer. If you don’t have a Kitchenaid mixer, I’ve heard good things about the Cuisinart ice cream maker.

    I’ve never made cookie dough ice cream but am wanting to try this one. Is there a way to substitute the egg yolks or leave it out?

    Thanks!

    • beantownbaker — April 16th, 2014 @ 6:00 pm

      I would assume you could find a Philadelphia style ice cream recipe to use as the base with some brown sugar in it to give it more of a cookie dough taste. I wouldn’t recommend just leaving them out of this specific recipe though.
