Orange cupcakes recipe for deliciously citrus flavored cupcakes filled with candied ginger and topped with decadent dark chocolate ganache. An irresistible cupcake combination indeed!
I love these orange cupcakes. They are packed with all my favorite flavors - orange, ginger and chocolate and I can eat these anytime of the day.
The distinct feature of these cupcakes lies in the way I have combined all these flavours together. Although they are all in one cupcake, I have added them as separate components to the cupcakes such that when you take a bite into one of these cupcakes, you know you are biting into an orange flavored cupcake that has chunks of candied ginger as the filling and chocolate ganache as its garnish. How is that for a combination?
This orange ginger cupcakes recipe is a make-from-scratch recipe, just like all my other recipes. And the ingredients are pretty common too except for the candied ginger which can be purchased from any cake supplies shop. You can chop the ginger into smaller pieces and mix them together into the cupcake batter rather than adding them as a filling to the cupcakes, but I chose to use the candied ginger as the filling and they were just as perfect!
Similar to my other cupcake recipes, this recipe is not a calculated recipe which means I do not provide an estimate of number of cupcakes each recipe batch will yield. This is simply because the final number of cupcakes you will get out of each batch would depend very much on the size of the cupcake casing you use. If you intend to make these cupcakes in large batches, I would recommend that you try them out in a small batch. That way, you will know how many cupcakes you will get and multiply the recipe accordingly depending on the number of cupcakes you need to make.
Here is the full printable version of my orange cupcakes recipe:
The candied ginger is added to the cupcakes as a filling before the cupcakes are baked. To do that, you will have to fill your cupcakes with batter to about 1/3 of the cupcake casings. Drop the chopped candied ginger in the centre and then top them with the cupcakes batter to almost 2/3 full.
