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!

Happy Baking!

    I made these muffins and added 2 eggs (took a guess) and it worked perfectly. Also, I didn’t have ground cloves so I used half nutmeg and half allspice – also worked great. They take longer to bake (in my oven, anyways) than the recipe says, about 25 minutes. But very tasty when done 🙂

    This recipe looks gorgeous – I am afraid to go and bake them now, because I’m home alone, and I’d just eat them all!!
