Maple Spiced Brownie Cupcakes

These maple spiced brownie cupcakes have all the taste and texture of a chocolate brownie in cupcake form, with the flavours of autumn baked inside. They’re also packed with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg which gives them a wonderful depth of flavour, and the maple sugar adds a touch of Autumn to this tasty bake.
