Gingerbread Muffins

Lynn demonstrates how to  make Gingerbread Muffins.   This would be a great addition to a Holiday breakfast table or to have for a snack.  Adapted from The Sisters Café.


  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup molasses
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice


Mix the following together until desired consistency is reached:

  • 1 Tablespoon softened butter
  • 1-1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tablespoons milk

Heat oven to 400°.  Grease bottoms only of 23 regular size muffin cups or place a paper baking cup in each muffin cup.

In a large bowl, beat brown sugar, molasses, milk, oil and egg with a spoon, (or you can use an electric mixer).  Stir in remaining ingredients just until flour is moistened.  Divide batter evenly into the muffin cups.

Bake 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Immediately remove from pan to wire rack to cool.  Drizzle powdered sugar glaze over top.
