Recipe Ingredients for Okra Cupcakes with Fennel Frosting

2 1/2 cup flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground fennel
1/4 tsp ground ginger
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
1 cup ginger ale
2 cup okra

Frosting:
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 c unsalted butter, room temperature
2 c powdered sugar
1 tbsp ground fennel

Recipe Directions for Okra Cupcakes with Fennel Frosting

  1. "In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, fennel, and ginger. Set aside.

  2. In another medium-sized mixing bowl, mix the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.

  3. Mix the eggs into the butter/sugar mixture one at a time.

  4. Alternately mix the flour mixture and the ginger ale into the wet ingredients until just combined.

  5. Fold in the okra.

  6. Divide batter evenly between 12 cupcake liners.

  7. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes or until cupcakes bounce back when lightly touched.
