Molasses Muffins

Molasses Muffins

2 c. sifted flour
3 t. baking powder
3 T. sugar
½ t. salt
½ t. ginger (or other spice)
1 egg
¼ c. dark molasses
¾ c. milk

Put flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and ginger (or other spice) into bowl.  Drop shortening onto flour at one side.  Add egg, molasses, and milk.  Cut shortening into small pieces (size of pea) with fork.  Stir all contents until flour is moistened, ingredients just mixed.  Batter will be lumpy.  Fill muffin tines 2/3 full.  Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  1. This looks like a really good muffin recipe, simple and tasty. It looks like the amount of shortening needed didn't get posted, though. I'm guessing you'd need about half a cup. Does that sound right? Thanks!
