Spiced up Orange Cupcakes

These Cupcakes come with an Attitude. Unusual spices like tumeric will make these Cupkaces so special.

 

What you need:

2 1/2 cups wholegrain spelt flour

1/4 cup corn starch

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 sea salt

16 tbs or 2 sticks of unsalted butter, room temperature

1 3/4 sugar

4 eggs

1 tbs vanilla paste or real vanilla extract

1/2 cup whole milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

zest of 1 large orange

1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 fresh grated ginger

1/4 ground  cardamom

1/4 ground turmeric

1/2 all spice

 

Preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit or 180 Celsius. Line a cupcake baking tray with cupcake liners. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large enough bowl. In a separated bowl, beat the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer, until light and fluffy. Next, beat in the eggs one by one until incorporated. Now beat in the spices, milk, heavy cream, vanilla,orange juice and zest, beat it with the mixer until all is well combined. Add the wet ingredients to your dry and mix until you have a smooth batter ( do not over mix). Depending on your size of cupcakes and heat of your oven, bake for about 20-25 min. Cupcakes are done when a wooden toothpick is inserted and comes out clean and the cupcakes are slightly golden. Let them cool completely on a wire rack.

 

Frosting:

8 oz unsalted butter

8 oz white baking chocolate

1/4 vanilla bean paste or extract

zest of a 1/2 orange

 

In a pot add your butter and white chocolate. Melt them on medium low heat. Once melted, take it of the heat and mix in the zest and vanilla. Let it cool. It will look very wired. Once it is cold and hard, you beat the harden frosting with an electric mixer until you have a nice fluffy frosting ( don’t let it get to warm). It will hold his shape when piping it on to the frosting.
