Ginger Muffins

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.

It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend." ~ Melody Beattie

Hello everyone~ What a beautiful day we are having here on the Island! The grass is getting thick and green and will need cutting soon. I love this time of year!

For tea time this week I served Ginger muffins and promised to share the recipe. These are moist and just like mini gingerbread cakes. Yummy! Hope you will give them a try.

Ginger Muffins
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg - I used an extra large egg
1/2 cup molasses
1/4 cup hot water

1-3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cloves

1/4 cup hot water

Combine butter, sugar, egg, molasses and the 1/4 cup of hot water in a mixing bowl. Beat together well.

Meaure next six dry ingredients into the same bowl and stir together.

Gradually stir in the last 1/4 cup of hot water into the batter. Fill greased muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake in 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes, then remove. Makes 1 dozen muffins.  ~ From a wonderful cook book, Company's Coming.

These muffins are wonderful with just butter or with whipped cream and lemon curd.

Thank you for visiting today and I wish all you lovely moms out there a Happy Mother's Day! Have a beautiful weekend and God bless you!

Lord, this humble house we'd keep
Sweet with play and calm with sleep.

Help us so that we may give
Beauty to the lives we live.
Let Thy beauty and Thy grace

Shine upon our dwelling place. ~ Edgar A. Guest
