These gingerbread muffins from Nigella Lawson are absolutely delicious!! they are a favourite in my house and with friends. I often make a batch to put in Christmas hampers. am sending these to Happy Cook from My Kitchen Treasures for her Home made Christmas Gifts event.
preheat oven to 200C/400F/gas mark 6
250g self-raising flour
1/2 t bicarbonate of soda
1/2 t baking powder
1 1/2 t ground ginger
1 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t ground cloves
50g dark muscavado sugar
50g light muscavado sugar
150ml full fat milk
1/4 t balsamic vinegar
6 T vegetable or corn oil
4 T golden syrup
4 T black treacle
Place first 6 ingredients (the dry) in a bowl and set aside.
In another bowl (she used a large mixing jug with a spout) add the egg and dark and light muscavado sugars. Whisk slightly. You don't want to get too much air in these muffins. Add the milk, vinegar, oil, golden syrup and treacle. Mix again.
Pour the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients, combine, leaving slightly lumpy.
Place paper liners in a 12 muffin tin - these are not oversized muffins. Pour batter into tins.
Bake for 20 mins.
