Is there any better smell than fresh gingerbread baking in the oven? Gingerbread muffins are a marvelous treat no matter what your age! Mine are made with lots of ginger and cinnamon and sorghum molasses! And for just a hint of freshness, thin strips of orange zest added on top before popping into the oven! I couldn’t wait to try them! Such a delightful gingerbread taste – with a hint of orange! How appealing to sit by the Christmas tree and have a muffin and tea! Pure bliss!
Christmas Gingerbread Muffins
- 1 – 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 – 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 – 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 egg, well beaten
- 1/3 cup cooking oil
- 1/2 cup sorghum molasses
- orange zest
Add flour, baking powder, brown sugar, ginger and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir well. Add the milk, egg, cooking oil and molasses. Stir until ingredients are well mixed. Fill greased muffin tins 2/3 full (my batch made 15). Top with orange zest. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown or an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!
