Gingerbread Muffins. Soft and light. Great with a glass of milk.

Top Review by Pixie

I made these up as mini muffins and got about 2 dozen -- all nicely raised and even. Perfect little muffins. Tasty, but we felt like they were missing something. We're too used to muffins having fruit of some kind. I ended up adding a cinnamon icing to the top. I guess that makes them more like a cupcake than a muffin, but they're really good like that!
