ginger bread muffins

There’s something about the spices in gingerbread that just says ‘winter’.

IngredientsBrought to you by Essential Kids'

  • 2 cups (200g) plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups (300g) packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup (250ml) buttermilk
  • 125g butter, melted

Method

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius. Line a 12 hole muffin tin with muffin papers.

Combine the flour, bicarbonate soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon and allspice in a large mixing bowl. Using a whisk, stir it together until all the spices appear evenly distributed amongst the flour.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, brown sugar, buttermilk and melted butter.

Pour the liquid into the dry mixture and using a rubber spatula, stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

Using a large spoon, evenly distribute the mixture among the muffin papers and put in the oven to bake for 18-20 minutes.
