Basket filled with a tea towel and mini gingerbread muffins.

It is officially December, which mean’s it is time to start some holiday baking. For me this usually means a jeans size worth batch of peanut butter blossoms and butterscotch haystacks.

But this year, I am going to try to watch the sweets I make and eat…which is going to be extremely difficult. And I can’t promise I won’t slip up a couple times…but I do promise that this year I will be trying and sharing some new recipes. So to start, I made these fun Gingerbread Muffins. 



Yield: 32 mini muffins

  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line mini muffin pan with muffin liners.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together milk and vinegar. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.

  4. In a separate bowl, mix the egg, molasses, melted butter, and milk mixture together.

  6. Using a piping bag or ziplock baggie, fill pre-greased mini muffin tins about 3/4 full.
