  1. 1⁄3 cups (165 g) all-purpose flour
  2. 1 tablespoon (15 mL) ground ginger
  3. 1 teaspoon (5 mL) mustard powder
  4. 1 teaspoon (5 mL) baking soda
  5. 1⁄2 teaspoon (2 mL) ground cinnamon
  6. Pinch of ground cloves
  7. 1⁄2 cup (95 g) dark brown sugar
  8. 1⁄4 cup (90 g) molasses
  9. 2 tablespoons (30 mL) vegetable oil
  10. 2 egg whites
  11. 1⁄2 cup (125 mL) buttermilk
  12. Piece of fresh ginger (2-inch/5-cm)
  13. 1⁄2 cup (60 g) confectioners’ sugar
  14. 2 tablespoons (30 mL) chopped crystallized ginger
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 12-hole (1⁄3 cup/80 mL) muffin pan with paper liners. Sift flour, ginger, mustard, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves into a bowl.
  2. 2. Place sugar, molasses, and oil in a large bowl and beat until well combined. Beat in egg whites one at a time until incorporated and the mixture has a light texture. Fold the flour mixture and buttermilk into the sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Spoon into paper liners. Bake 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Place pan on a wire rack and let cupcakes cool completely.
  3. 3. Peel the fresh ginger and grate finely. Squeeze to extract the juice and measure 2 teaspoons (10 mL). Combine confectioners’ sugar and ginger juice in a bowl to make a glaze. Add a little water if necessary. Spread glaze over the tops of the cupcakes and sprinkle with crystallized ginger.
