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.

Let Thy beauty and Thy grace

Shine upon our dwelling place. ~ Edgar A. Guest
