    Even people who don't like pumpkin or ginger love these cupcakes. These disappear as fast as I can set them out!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 24 

    • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
    • 100g instant butterscotch pudding mix
    • 2 teaspoons bicarb soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    • 1/3 cup finely chopped crystallised ginger
    • 250g butter, room temperature
    • 1 cup (200g) white sugar

    Directions
    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C. Grease 24 muffin cups, or line with paper liners. Whisk together the flour, pudding mix, bicarb soda, salt, cinnamon, ground ginger, allspice, cloves and crystallised ginger in a bowl; set aside.
    2. Beat the butter, white sugar and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in colour. Add the room-temperature eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in the vanilla and pumpkin puree with the last egg. Stir in the flour mixture, mixing until just incorporated. Pour the batter into the prepared muffin cups.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and the tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
