directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F Grease muffin tins or use paper liners.
  • Peel a chunk of fresh gingerroot and grate it very finely, then cut off another chunk and grate it, until you have 2 oz or about 1/4 cup.
  • Grind the sugar (I use my good old electric coffeegrinder for this).
  • In a small saucepan, slowly heat half of the sugar and the grated gingerroot until all sugar has melted and mixture is hot.
  • Turn off heat and stir in lemon zest.
  • Cream the remaining sugar with the margarine until well combined, then stir in eggs one by one.
  • Add the soy yogurt and mix until smooth. Stir in ginger-lemon mixture.
  • Sift flours, salt, guar/xanthan gum and baking soda together in a separate bowl. Note 1: If your cake flour mix already contains xanthan or guar gum, there's no need to add extra. Note 2: If you use a store bought mix, there will probably be a leavening agent in it already, in this case add only 3/8 tsp baking soda.
  • Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture gradually. Beat until smooth.
  • Fill up the muffin tins so that each cup is almost full (they will rise up beautifully but sink back in for 20% or so ;-))
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Let cool for a couple of minutes and transfer to a wire rack, until cool enough to handle.
  • Serve warm.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

Love to cook and bake, always have. Our toddler DD is gluten and lactose intolerant and mom just can't stomach the idea that a lifelong gluten free or dairy free diet would simply mean settling for less. Finding yummy recipes that work therefor make me very happy, and ever so grateful for a site like this!!!
