This recipe is from the Brass Lantern Inn in Searsport, Maine. I love the snap of the crystalized ginger

These muffins were wonderful and so moist. I like to take muffins to work with me to have with my coffee. Always looking for muffin recipes ; ) These are a keeper! I added raisins to recipe and I got 16 muffins instead of 12 probably because I added the raisins. Next time I am going to add nuts. This recipe is YUUUMMM!!! Thank you Barbara Mooers ; )

Light as a feather muffins. No buttermilk? Place 1 tsp of lemon juice in measuring cup and fill with milk to half cup; allow to sit at room temp while butter softens. Used "real" Vietnamese cinnamon and tripled the quantity. Thank you, Aroostook.

These are nice, light and very gingery. I did add about a cup of chopped, toasted walnuts, as one of the other reviews suggested. I didn't change anything else. Thank you for posting this recipe.
