It's Muffin Time

I wasn't sure about posting a muffin recipe. Do people really eat muffins anymore? They are kind of a crumbly mess, and you never see them served in restaurants, well except for a bagel or coffee shop. Anyway, my Mom was great at whipping up muffins for dinner. These particular ones were a special treat, practically dessert! I love to make a double batch and have them for breakfast the rest of the week.

Ginger Muffins

1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup molasses(not dark)
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Cream shortening and sugar.

Add egg and molasses.

Combine dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture.

Gradually add 1/2 cup hot water, beating until smooth. Fill greased muffin pans, or ones lined with paper liners, about 2/3 full.

Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes. Makes one dozen.

You rock! I still make muffins, my boys think they are cupcakes and sometimes you can get a few nutritional things in it. Thanks for posting.
