  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • Pinch Salt


  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

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.
  • I love gingerbread and a muffin style is a great way to enjoy the flavour.


  • These hit the spot!


  • These look and sound delicious – just the thing to try around Christmas, and then enjoy all year thanks!


  • I have never seen gingerbread muffins before. I am sure everyone will love them.


  • Thanks for posting this recipe. I usually make gingerbread biscuits, but I’m looking forward to trying these muffins.


  • I’ve had a real thing for ginger beer of late so this will go down nicely I bet!


  • Mum is a big fan of ginger,she’ll love them!


  • love this recipe thanks for sharing


  • I think I could replace the eggs and this would still be delicious.


  • Glad you said it was runny, then I know I have done nothing wrong. It seems muffin mixes that do not seem right are right. Had one that was so thick but it came out so light in texture.
