Gingerbread Muffins

Travel Food Recipes

Nestled in the tiny town of Ogunquit along Maine's rocky southern coast, the classic Seafair Inn has 20 antique-appointed rooms as well as this delicious recipe for:


1/2 cup sugar
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 cup chopped nuts
1 egg
1 cup molasses
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 350. Butter muffin tins.

Combine sugar, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, salt, nutmeg and nuts in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix egg, molasses, buttermilk and melted butter, and add to the dry ingredients. Stir until just blended.

Spoon into muffin tins and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Test with a toothpick: muffins are done when it comes out clean. Can also be served warmed with whipped cream or ice cream as a dessert. Serves 12.
