Gingerbread muffins!

Updated: Nov 9, 2020

Ingredients - 5 large muffins

150g plain flour

60g unsalted butter or baking spread

60g treacle (I use Lyle’s)

60g light brown sugar

80ml whole milk

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp mixed spice

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground cardamom (I think this one is important - it really gives the muffins that gingerbread flavour!)

1 medium egg

A pinch of salt

(Topping):

50g unsalted butter

50g cream cheese

50g icing sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon


* Cases I use for my muffins: https://amzn.to/2TAL6Td *

(Notes):

You do not have to use all the spices I’ve listed. In my opinion the most important ones are cinnamon, ginger and cardamom. I’ve just listed the ones I personally used but it’s up to you!

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees fan and line a muffin tray with 5 cases.

  2. In a bowl, melt your butter in the microwave and mix it together with the treacle.

  3. Add in the egg and whole milk. Mix to combine.

  4. Add in the flour, bicarbonate of soda, sugar, salt and spices. Mix until just combined.

  5. Pour the muffin batter into the cases until they are 3/4 full.

  6. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes before turning the heat down to 170 degrees fan. Bake for a further 17-18 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when inserted.

  7. Once baked, leave aside to cool down before making the cream cheese frosting.

  8. To make the frosting, beat the butter until smooth. Add in the icing sugar and cream cheese and mix until combined. Add in the cinnamon and mix to distribute throughout the icing.

  9. Once the muffins have cooled, use a knife to make a hole in the muffins and fill with the frosting until full.

  10. If you like, add some sprinkles on top and a mini gingerbread man.

  11. Serve and enjoy!
