Gingerbread Muffins

I love this recipe for Gingerbread Muffins because they aren’t overly sweet and the flavour of gingerbread really comes through with each bite. They are a great addition to your morning coffee especially during the festive holiday season!

We’ve been busy with our holiday preparations. The tree is finally up and I’m almost done shopping for Christmas gifts. I just have a few last minute things to pick up. It’s really starting to feel like Christmas in my home. I love this time of year.

    1. We love molasses, and these are wonderful with a whole cup. I’d love to try them.

    2. Heather T says:

      Made these today, so good. I subbed applesauce for the oil and used two cups whole wheat flour and one white.

      1. I made this recipe for Gingerbread muffins today and they are delicious. Thanks for sharing

    3. Anne Marie Cooke says:

      I just made these. Excellent!

    4. All purpose flour or self rising? Thank you….these sound amazing!

    5. I made these tonight and they were delicious!! The house smelled wonderful. I candied some pumpkin seeds and added them on top before I put them in the oven. I will definitely make these again! Thank you for the recipe

    6. Is that fresh grated ginger or dried powdered ginger? Thanks!

    7. BlarneyTalker says:

      These were delicious. I would highly recommend to make sure the ginger powder is fresh as mine was not and the ginger flavor was not as crisp as I would have liked

    8. I’m trying to find the recipe for a lemon sauce that goes over ginger bread. Thank you.

    9. Made this yesterday and it was a huge hit. Even the ….I don’t care for gingerbread loved it. I only had blackstrap Molasses so used 1/2 of the amount and used white corn syrup.

      Best gingerbread muffin/cake recipe I have tried in 3 years. Will be trying many more of your recipes.

      Will be making a batch for gift giving 🙂
