I love a Delicious Ginger Muffin First Thing With My Coffee.
These delectable little spicy ginger muffins whip up in no time, and your house will be smelling like Christmas in July, what could be better? These use some of my absolute favorite ingredients, molasses, cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Anything that produces that amazing spicy Autumn smell in my house is a winner. And with coffee? Oh man, yes please!
Freeze The Leftovers!
Muffins will keep in a closed container at room temperature for about four days, or frozen for up to two months. You could even make a double batch and stock your freezer for later!
Spicy Ginger Muffins Recipe Tips & Tricks
- Find a good quality ground ginger, it absolutely makes a difference in the end result of your baked goods.
- Try not to over bake the muffins or they will turn rubbery.
- Try to use real buttermilk as I find that simply adding vinegar to milk isn’t quite the same end result when it comes down to it.
- Follow my directions on How to Make Perfect Dome Topped Muffins. It really works!
These are my daughters favourite muffins, which I find odd because she doesn’t really like anything TOO full of flavour, but these I guess are the exception. These spicy ginger muffins are basically gingerbread in a muffin cup, so no wonder she loves them!
