Mixed Spice / Gingerbread / Kruidnootjes cupcakes

Print Friendly and PDF
To complete my Sinterklaas trio of recipes I decided to prepare some cupcakes with mixed spice speculoos and also kruidnootjes.

Since all our belongings are currently on a ship somewhere in Asia I had to prepare these cupcakes by hand. The end result might have been fluffier and looked better if I had my kitchen tools.

Quantity: 8-9 cupcakes
  • 100 grams selfraising flour
  • 100 grams granulated sugar
  • 200 grams butter
  • 2 eggs
  • around 20 kruidnootjes
  • 100 grams cream cheese
  • 75 grams icing sugar
  • 2 teaspoons speculoos spice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsisus;
  2. Mix 100 grams of the butter, flour, granulated sugar and the eggs in a bowl into batter;
  3. If you're not using cupcake wrapper, butter up the cupcake forms so that the cupcakes won't stick to the form;
  4. Crumble half of the kruidnootjes in the batter and mix;
  5. Add the batter in the cupcake forms, filling each slot until the middle of the form;
  6. Place in the oven for around 20 minutes;
  7. In the meantime mix the remaining butter, icing sugar, cream cheese until the mixture is smooth;
  8. Mix in the speculoos spices. Reserve a small amount for later use;
  9. Once the cupcakes have cooled down add the cream cheese topping on top of each cupcake;
  10. Finish off with a kruidnootje on each cupcake and cover with the remaining spices.
