I love ginger and chocolate, combined the flavours remind of chocolate dipped Lebkuchen and all those other lovely German Christmas treats.
These lightly spiced cupcakes, with the addition of pumpkin to keep them moist & creamy chocolate truffle centres are sure to become a Christmas favourite.
*Notes: Steam pumpkin and mash with a fork until smooth. Once the cakes are filled with truffle mix they need to be served immediately or refrigerated in a covered container, bring to room temperature before serving. You may have left over truffle mix, depending on how deep you cut the holes in the cakes, remaining mix can be be made into small balls and rolled in cocoa to make truffles.
