Pineapple & ginger cupcakes

Managed to put this one together without a recipe and it still turned out quite good!

Ingredients: -
115g butter
115g caster sugar
115g self raising flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup crushed canned pineapple
1/2 teaspoon mixed spices/ cinnamon
1 teaspoon grated ginger

3/4 cup icing sugar
1 tablespoon pineapple juice
1/2  teaspoon softened butter

Method: -
Heat oven to 180C.

Mix butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in eggs and mix well.

Sift flour into mixture. Mix in crushed pineapple, grated ginger and mixed spices.

Bake until nicely browned.

For the icing, mix all the ingredients together in a heatproof bowl sitting in another bowl of hot water to help the ingredients blend together. The icing hardened up quite quickly so you have to be quick! I wanted to sprinkle chai sugar over the top but the icing already set.
