Ginger & plum cupcakes


ginger plum cupcake
I'm not much of a fruit cake lover.
Most of the time, if you'll offer me to try cakes with different kinds of fruits, I'll probably say no.
Don't get me wrong I love fruit, just not so much in my cake:-).

There was a contest making recipes with fruit.
I've decided to give it a try and make one of the things I love - cupcakes and add to it some plum, which is also one of my favorite fruit and spice it up with some ginger because I've seen that ginger goes well with fruit.

Eventually, I didn't win the contest, but the cupcake was delicious!
I had my father try it first, and after seeing how much he loved it, I gave it a try too.
Honestly, before and while I had my first bite, I made quite a petrified expression.
What can I say? It's in mind, but still can't overcome it.
The cupcake was delectable and quite beautiful.

Ingredients for 9 cupcakes:
110-gram flour (1 cup, 3.9 OZ)
1/3 Tbsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 L egg
75-gram sugar (1/2 cup, 2.65 OZ)
50 ml milk (1/4 cup, 1.7 OZ)
50-gram butter, melted (1.76 OZ)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Plum puree out of 2 plums (Weight before Granulation: 230 gram/8.11 OZ, after 208 gram/7.33 OZ)
1 Tbsp. Wilton red sprinkles (optional)

For the Streusel:
1/2 cup flour
1/6 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
25-gram butter (0.88 OZ)

plum, diced (optional)

*Measurements were made with a 200ml cup.

Make the Streusel first:
Mix the flour, sugar, and cinnamon. Crumble the butter inside, until you get a dough.
Place in the freezer to set and prepare the cupcakes.
Heat oven to 200C/392F.

Mix the flour, baking powder, salt, and ginger.
On a separate bowl, mix the egg, milk, sugar, butter, vanilla extract, plum puree, and sprinkles.
Add to the dry ingredients bowl and mix well.
Transfer the cupcakes mixture to a muffin pan covered with muffin tins.

Take the dough out of the freezer and grate it using a grater.
Sprinkle the grated dough on top of the muffins, if you diced extra plum, sprinkle it too and finish with the grated 
Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes and then sit aside to cool.

Enjoy! And would appreciate your comments :-)
