Lovely moist gingery muffins for lunchbox or afternoon tea


Ingredients (makes 12 large muffins)

  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup Golden Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Bicarb Soda
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable or Canola Oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup Caster Sugar
  • 2 cups Plain Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Ground Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • Pinch Salt

Method

  1. Pour boiling water into bowl , add golden syrup and bicarb stir well. Allow to cool slightly
  2. Add oil and eggs mix well, add sugar
  3. Stir in sifted dry ingredients
  4. Pour into paper lined muffin cases
  5. Bake at 180 for 15-20 minutes or until judged cooked

Notes... This is a VERY runny mix I make it in a jug and pour it , dont be alarmed it is suppose to be very runny but it DOES work. Nice iced with a simple lemon icing if desired.

  • Yum. I have just put a tray into my oven. I added some diced apple as well. Kids looking forward to these for school snack tomorrow. Kitchen smells amazing at the moment. My 15year old was having a sleep and the amazing smell just woke him up… hubby is licking his lips because he wants one with a coffee

  • Thanks for the tip about the runny consistency. I always get a bit worried at that point when making batter.

  • I’ve made gingerbread men, stars and even a gingerbread cheesecake. I’m definitely going to have to make these muffins.
