  • 1/4 cup cannabis infused butter melted
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar preferably dark brown
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1/3 cup molasses

  • 1/8 cup molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coarse raw sugar for garnish, optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 16 muffin tins with paper cupcake liners.
  • In a small bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Stir to combine well.
  • Beat together melted cannabis butter, eggs, brown sugar, molasses, and milk until well blended.

Prepare Icing

  • Beat cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. 
  • Beat in molasses and vanilla extract. 
  • Gradually beat in powdered sugar and continue to beat until all ingredients are combined and icing is smooth.
  • Use the back of a spoon or a rubber spatula to swirl a generous amount of icing on each cupcake, leaving a small border of cake exposed around the edge as in the photo. 
  • If desired sprinkle coarse raw sugar over the top.
