Gingerbread just says Christmas to me.  I made gingerbread people for the kids to decorate at the family gathering.  That reminded me of this recipe for gingerbread muffins.  I love a breakfast muffin with my coffee.  This is a good one for Christmas morning brunch.

A TIP TO PASS ALONG:  Martha says to spray the measuring cup before measuring the molasses.  I have not tried this yet, but Martha wouldn't lead us astray.


  1. Orange and gingerbread?? What could be better.
    Will definitely try this. And yes, I trust Martha completely.

  2. This seems lie a yummy and simple to make treat. The house will smell great too. I shall try this.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
