Hope Vaillancourt Recipe

Jason’s Deli is one of my favorite places to eat. Their mini gingerbread muffins are so delicious and are little bites of Christmas! The best thing about this recipe is how simple it is, you can whip it up in about 10 minutes. However, in my opinion these gingerbread muffins taste MUCH better if you let them sit for a while. They just aren’t as sweet or ginger-y when they are warm. I usually let mine cool and then put them in a covered container or plastic bag and let them sit overnight. Enjoy & Merry Christmas!

1 c
dark brown sugar
2 1/2 c
1 1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
1 tsp
ground ginger
1/2 tsp
1/4 tsp
1/2 c
1 c
1/2 c
unsalted butter, melted

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray/butter muffin tins.
Combine sugar, flour, soda, salt and spices in a bowl.
In a separate bowl mix the egg, molasses, milk, and butter.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just blended.
Add to muffin tins** (about 3/4 full, these muffins don’t rise too much, so you don’t have to worry about them overflowing) and bake for 15 minutes. If making normal sized muffins, it’ll be more like 20 minutes. Muffins are done when a toothpick comes out clean.
**If you don’t have buttermilk (I almost never do), just add 1 tbsp. of white vinegar or lemon juice to a cup of regular milk and let sit out for about 10 minutes.**

I love the Jason's Deli muffins, so I had to try this. My whole family absolutely loves it. We made muffins (per the directions), mini muffins (only had them in the oven for 9 minutes) and cookies (left out the milk and baked them for only 8 minutes). We were even able to roll out the cookie dough and cut out shapes. We iced them once they cooled. We also made the softest ginger snaps ever with the same dough (no icing and rolled cookie dough into a ball to bake). Our house smells wonderful and our tummies are full. Thanks for the recipe!

I see that this recipe serves 12. Does that mean that this makes 12 mini muffins or 24 mini muffins? Thanks in advance :)

I have just put these in the oven and they smell delicious! I think there will be about 30 or more mini muffins, I used a small cookie scoop to measure the batter to make sure they were the same size.
