Jalapeño Pepper Garnish
Slice jalapeño peppers with knife to make an opening, keeping pepper intact. Scrape out seeds and white seams.
Run 800ml glass jar under hot water until warm. Place jalapeño peppers in jar.
Boil vinegar and 110 ml (1/2 cup) of water in medium saucepan; add cinnamon sticks, cloves and cardamom. Pour mixture over jalapeño peppers in jar and seal; set aside for 15 minutes.
Mix remaining one cup of water and sugar in a pan; bring to slow boil. Dip each pickled jalapeño pepper in sugar water. Set aside.
Remove cake batter from refrigerator. Pour batter into ramekins or muffin tins, filling 3/4 of the way. Bake 13-15 minutes (the top should be soft in the middle and cake-like on rim). Sprinkle the top with sifted confectioners sugar, top with jalapeño pepper and serve immediately.
