Mmmm...haven't tried this yet. Sounds good. Next time pomegranates are on sale, this is my #1 priority!(or 24 mini, 6 jumbo)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Grease 12 muffin tins.
  3. Mix dry ingredients (sugar, flour, baking powder, salt) in a large bowl.
  4. Mix wet ingredients (milk, egg, oil/butter, lemon zest) in a medium bowl.
  5. Make a"well" in your dry ingredients and pour in your wet ingredients until just mixed.
  6. Overmixing will make your muffins tough.
  7. You may want to undermix it a bit and finish your mixing with the next step when you add the pomegranate/ginger.
  8. Fold in pomegranate seeds and ginger.
  9. Spoon into greased muffin tins.
  10. Sprinkle tops with sugar, which will caramelize in the oven and make a lovely sugary top.
  11. Bake for 10-15 minutes until puffed and golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  12. Let cool for 5-10 minutes in the tin, then remove and cool on a cookie rack, or serve.
  13. You may use mini-muffin tins or jumbo muffin tins, but the cook time will vary.
  14. Muffins tend to need to be watched carefully, regardless.
  15. Another possibility might be to mix some powdered ginger (a small amount, it is strong) with your sugar topping.

I was not too impressed with these. I followed the recipe exactly, and I could barely mix the dry and wet ingredients together. I added a LOT of extra milk, and they still came out dry and tasting like baking soda. Maybe I will make them again if I find a better muffin base.

i made these yesterday and they are fantastic if you like ginger! my husband went crazy for them. they only reason i didn't give 5 stars is that it took so long to get the pomegranate seeds out! i plan on making this a holiday breakfast staple as we have a pomegranate tree in our front yard!
