Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil

We highly recommend using our Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil for this recipe.

*Using any other CBD oil besides Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil may drastically change the recipe, taste, and potency of your CBD gingerbread cupcakes.

Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil is specifically designed for baking.

We source fresh hemp flower from local Wisconsin farmers and manufacture this product in-house. Our CBD Baking Oil contains CBD concentrate made with solventless extraction and no added preservatives!

Again, there are no solvents used in the hemp extraction process like the majority of other retailer’s products out there.

All you get is the straight CBD concentrate from our in-house processed hemp flower infused into MCT oil. Some would call this organic processing.

Also, it is half the cost of 95% of all other CBD oils on the market, since you are buying right from us – the manufacturer!

Gingerbread Cupcakes

  • Preheat your oven to 350° F / 180° C.
  • In a bowl add the melted butter, egg, molasses, brown sugar, vanilla extract, milk, & Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil.
    Important: Mix thoroughly at this step for a few minutes to ensure the Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil is dispersed throughout the mixture. This will ensure each cupcake has a more even dosage of CBD.
  • Whisk and stir in the flour, cinnamon, ground nutmeg, cloves, ginger, pinch of salt, baking soda and baking powder.
  • Line the muffin tin with muffin cups and using an ice cream scoop, scoop out from the batter and fill the muffin cups just ¾ of the way full. This way, the cupcake has room to rise.
  • Bake them in the pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Then pull them out and set them aside to cool completely.


  • In a bowl add the heavy whipping cream, ground nutmeg, powdered sugar and vanilla extract.
  • Beat with a hand mixer on slow until it starts to thicken and then beat until stiff peaks start to form.
  • Transfer the frosting into a piping bag fitted with larger circle hole tip and frost the cupcakes creating snow peaks.
  • After frosting, add a Christmas cookie on top!
  • Enjoy your Simply Add CBD™ Gingerbread Cupcakes!


To give these CBD gingerbread cupcakes nice kick, you can add some rum into the frosting!
You want to fill the muffin cups with just ¾ of the batter, so you can leave space for them to rise in the oven without overflowing!
Also, the reason why it is best to use an ice cream scoop is because it provides a way to get even portioning for the cupcakes. 
Be sure to whip up the heavy cream in stiff peaks so the frosting will stay on the cupcakes. 
You can store these cupcakes up to 5 days in fridge.
When changing the recipe to make more or less servings, make sure to calculate your Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil requirements accordingly to reach your desired dosage of CBD. This is also true if you decide to make larger (or smaller) sized cupcakes, but less (or more) total quantity of cupcakes with this exact recipe - your CBD dosage per cupcake will increase or decrease respectively with the size change.
To figure out the dosage per cupcake, use the values below to calculate your total CBD used and divide by the number of cupcakes you made. This is the estimated CBD per cupcake.
CBD dosage per Cupcake (Total ml of Simply Add CBD™ Baking Oil used  X  25 mg)  /  # of cupcakes made
eg. When making this exact recipe:
(6 ml X 25 mg) / 15 cupcakes ≈ 10 mg CBD /cupcake
