Perfect Gingerbread Muffins

On the second day of Christmas my true love baked for me...

Perfect Gingerbread Muffins

Dry Ingredients:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Scant teaspoon baking soda (a little less than a tsp)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Wet Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup molasses
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup melted shortening
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • Sugar in the raw
Mix all wet ingredients in mixing bowl, sift all dry ingredients into the mixing bowl. Beat until smooth. Pour into muffin liners or greased muffin tins. I filled mine to the top so they would be large. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes. Sprinkle with sugar in the raw just before the muffins set. 

These muffins are super moist and tasty. Plus, bonus, they make your house smell wonderful and Christmasy! Enjoy!
