This is such a special time of year! So many fun gatherings and so much food!  Happy get-togethers call for special treats.  Today's recipe for Gingerbread Cupcakes is perfect for any holiday party.

These cupcakes have all of the warm, spicy flavors of gingerbread cookies but in cupcake form!  I thought those flavors would pair nicely with a creamy vanilla frosting for an extra special treat.

Knowing that I will be bombarded with so many amazing looking desserts at every event we attend, I always make an effort to bring a treat that my real-food, gluten-free diet allows me to enjoy, while still pleasing the other guests who may not be so particular.

These cupcakes are moist and full of flavor with just enough sweetness to balance the spice.  The creamy vanilla frosting is the perfect compliment and it transforms what looks like a regular old muffin into a thing of beauty!  Dress the cupcakes up even more with a sprinkle of crystalized ginger or chopped nuts.

This recipe makes use of my Gingerbread Spice Blend, but I will also include the specific spices needed just for these muffins in the recipe below.  I love to keep a small jar of sweet and spicy blends like Gingerbread Spice or my other favorite, Chai Spice, in my pantry. They are a fun way to dress up quick breads or muffins, spice up a cup of herbal coffee or tea, change up your mug of hot chocolate, or give a little kick to your smoothies.

Enjoy today's recipe for Gingerbread Cupcakes and have a wonderful Holiday season!
