#MeatlessMonday - Spice Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting #dessert

I made these for my birthday last Wednesday. My teens liked them better without icing. Enjoy!

Spice Cupcakes 


1/2 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
3 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350°

1) In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
2) Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
3) In another bowl, whisk, flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda and salt.
4) Add ingredients to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating well after each addition.
5) Beat egg whites on medium speed until stiff. Fold into batter.

Fill lined cupcake tins 3/4 way full.
Bake 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
