Thank you to all who joined in for show and tell and for your comments on my special Autumn treasures! We've had a busy Saturday, but are about to relax and celebrate the upcoming first day of fall. It's been our tradition to watch Anne of Green Gables, and I made some Gingerbread cupcakes for our snack.
5 tablespoons butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake papers.
2. Cream the butter and sugar together in large mixing bowl. Add molasses, eggs and milk and blend well.
3. Sift together the flour, spices, baking soda and salt.
4. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and stir until just combined.
5. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared tin.
6. Bake at 350 degrees 18-20 minutes. Remove cupcakes to cooling rack. Frost when completely cooled.
~Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting~
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
Cream butter and cream cheese together. Beat in the confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until fluffy.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend with your family! I'll be around to visit you soon.

Those cupcakes would definitely go good with a cup of coffee. Thanks for the recipe, I will make them for my husband and I.
Your cupcakes look lovely - I will let you know when (not if!) I try them. :-)
Watching a certain movie or eating a certain food on the same day every year makes the very best memories of childhood!
I was wondering if you had heard of "The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook" by Kate MacDonald? I checked it out at our library last week. I've had the Little House cookbook for some time, but never knew there was a Green Gables one.
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend! :-)
Man, your cupcakes look so good, I am going to save the recipe...You always get everything looking so perfect for pictures....
makes me want to lick the screen of my laptop....lol....
Your cupcakes look delicious. I wish I could come over and watch Anne of Green Gables and eat some cupcakes. What a wonderful way to spend a fall afternoon.
Youe cupcakes look delicious ....I'm going to have to make some ..... soon !
Those cupcakes look delicious! I will have to file that recipe away until I have a working oven! I love Anne of Green Gables
Oh yum! Those look good! I'll have to make those. We usually have pumpkin this time of year and this will be a nice change. We love Anne of Green Gables too!
A girl after my own heart! No my grandchildren's, I bought the Little Debbie gingerbread cookies for them this week, I want to learn to make them again. But cupcakes I have to try these!!!!
My stomach immediately started growling! Yummm!
What a neat tradition to celebrate the first day of fall. And the cupcakes look sooo good! :)
Your cupcakes look so delicious! Never thought of making gingerbread as cupcakes. One of my favorite lines in "Anne..." is Marilla's "twenty pounds of brown sugar." I have the dvds and enjoy them with my 17 yr. old daughter.
I am drooling over your cupcakes. I mean it - I can taste them right now.
How wonderful that you watch Anne of Green Gables yearly. I do hope you have the Public Television version.
I find the actual book to be too "treacly" but the tv series was wonderful and I love spunky Anne.
What a fun tradition! I love Anne of Green Gables - the Megan Follows films (the first two!) as well as the books. The cupcakes look very yummy - I'll have to remember this recipe. Thanks for sharing!
Even with this cold I have I swear I can smell those!! LOL
Have a great weekend,
Oh, man, gingerbread AND a cream cheese frosting - yummmmmm! I'm printing the recipe now to try soon! Thanks for sharing it.
Hey Kelli, Its a wonder that anyone living under your roof is not 300+ lbs!
You always have the best yummy recipes!
Thanks for sharing all the time!
Hmm, those look delish and I love how you just piled on the frosting haphazardly, yummy!
Those look yummy! We laid around yesterday as well. We watched Hope Floats. A cute little movie. enjoy the rest of your weekend.
These look delicious.
I have given you a blog award at my blog for all the great work you do.
Your cupcakes look so yummy. What a fun tradition you have to welcome in Fall/Autumn.
Kelli, I love that you create & maintain such warm & wonderful family traditions. Your family will be so blessed by them!
Oh, and I love that you bake cupcakes, especially! *Ü*
Have a beautiful Sunday, Chris

These look so good. I am making whoopie pies today, but my husband is a gingerbread lover, so I'm headed back to the kitchen to whip up these! Acelia and I LOVE Anne of Green Gables too. We are going to PEI in two weeks. I can't wait.
Those cupcakes look delicious. The photographs made my mouth water and I'm determined to try your recipe this week. Thanks for sharing it. I think I'll have mine along with a nice cup of coffee. Mmmm...
Anne of Green Gables is such a treasured tale. I love all of the Anne books. Have a great week.
Oh, now that sounds like a perfect afternoon!

Your gingerbread cupcakes look so tempting. The smell of gingerbread baking just says "fall" to me.
Thanks for sharing your recipe.
Hi! Found your blog by way of my friend Gloria from http://glorv1.blogspot.com
She highly recommended your site and said I would love it. She was right! Your blog is just so amazing. Your recipes look delicious!
Those look so yummy!!!
Those cupcakes look too good to eat! I think that Clemmie and I are definitely going to have to try making a batch. Thanks for sharing!
Oh I hope you had a lovely weekend. Everything looked so pretty. I'll have to try your recipe they look yummy!
Have a great week.
I love gingerbread cake. It's one of my favorite winter desserts. We like to eat it a little warm with real whipped cream. But I'm gonna try your recipe and that frosting. It sounds yummy. Mimi
Oh, yum! These look soooo good!
Oh Yum! This post is a keeper! I hope you don't mind if I link to it on my side bar?
Those look great! I have company for tea this week. Now I know what I'll make.
Kelli - Me again. I just noticed in the first picture next to your cake plate are some white leaves with pumpkin colored candles. What is in the dish around the candles? Cranberries? Real or Faux? BTW - I love your pear jelly. I think they should be in every shot. I especially love the labels.
I made the cupcakes tonight! Yummy! And the house smelled so good! :-) Thanks for the great recipe!
I have always loved Anne of Green Gables. I love the way they lived.
I will have to copy your cup cakes, they look so good.
Good grief!! These look mighty tasty!!
Oh boy! I love gingerbread and these look amazing! Can't wait for it to cool off a little so I can make these. Thank you so much for the recipe!
I made these tonight.. very tasty! I love the combo of the ginger bread and the frosting. Here is a funny... when making the frosting, I didn't use icing sugar.. I used regular white sugar - oops! I hated to dump it but had no choice. It was quick to make another batch.
I made mine into mini cupcakes to take to church with me tomorrow. Wonderful recipe - this is a keeper. Thanks Kelli
(also a fellow Canuck who moved stateside)
I love gingerbread and these sound divine. Gonna make them tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe.
