Amazing cupcakes! Moist and tender, great flavor. The crystallized ginger adds just the right amount of kick. I forgot to get butterscotch pudding mix at the store, so I used what I had in my pantry - french vanilla pudding mix. I loved the result! For those not familiar with crystallized ginger, it is ginger that has been dried and sugared. When you first bite into it, it has a sweet lemony flavor, but then as you start chewing, you are hit with a peppery zing. A very interesting ingredient, and a perfect addition to these cupcakes! I found that I did have to bake the cupcakes more like 27 minutes (my oven runs cooler, so I actually baked them at 355, but it still took 27 minutes for them to be done). They are wonderful unfrosted, but I couldn't help frosting half the batch with "Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting" from this site. The combination is amazing!
