Recipe || Ginger Molasses Muffins


These Ginger Molasses Muffins are absolutely delicious, they taste just like Ginger Molasses Cookies but in muffin form. As I was looking through my Grandma’s old recipes I came across this one and decided to make a small batch to see how they were, well they didn’t last a full 24 hours in our house and everyone has been wanting me to make more since.

Here is the recipe so you can make them too!

You will need:

1/2 cup Shortening or Butter (I used half of each but either works too)

1/2 cup Sugar

1 egg

1 cup Molasses

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 heaping teaspoon of Cinnamon

1 heaping teaspoon of Ginger

1/2 teaspoon of Cloves

1 cup very hot water


What to do:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Cream butter/shortening with sugar until fluffy
  • Beat in egg, until combined
  • Beat in Molasses
  • Set aside and in a separate bowl mix dry ingredients
  • Slowly incorporate dry ingredients into the molasses mixture, until mostly combined
  • Pour hot water into the mix and slowly beat or quickly stir until the mix is smooth
  • Fill muffin tins 1/2 to 2/3 full and place in a hot oven (We made 28 muffins with this recipe)
  • Bake for 15 to 20 mins, until a toothpick comes out clean
  • Let cool on a baking rack
