DIRECTIONS

  • To assemble the gift jar:
  • Wash and thoroughly dry a 1-quart wide-mouth canning jar. (Decorative or vintage jars make a great keepsake after the muffin mix is used, just make sure the jar is food safe and washed thoroughly.).
  • Layer the ingredients in the jar as listed above, starting with the sugar on the bottom, then flour, cranberries, ginger, baking powder, baking soda and finally salt.
  • Press each ingredient layer firmly into place with a flat-bottomed object (like a plastic cup) before adding the next.
  • Secure the lid.
  • Create a recipe card that shares directions to prepare & bake muffins.
  • Directions to prepare muffins:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl combine buttermilk, butter, eggs and vanilla.
  • Add contents of jar and stir until just combined.
  • Spoon batter into greased or papered muffin tins, filling each cup two-thirds full.
  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool muffins for 5 minutes in the tin.
  • For a special treat make a slit in the top of the muffin and insert a pat of butter for any muffins you are going to eat right then.
  • Serve immediately or store in a sealed container for up to one week.
