Description

Devil’s food cupcakes are given extra flavor with the addition of candied ginger, for a sweet and spicy kick. The chocolate frosting is also updated with salted butter (instead of the usual unsalted variety) and a bit of tangy cream cheese. The result? Cupcakes that have all the familiar flavors of the classic but with unexpected notes that make them seem brand new. The unfrosted cupcakes will keep for up to three days at room temperature; once frosted, store them in the refrigerator, up to two days, and let sit at room temperature before serving.
