I feel like a kid waiting for Santa today, I woke to a cool 60 degrees this morning with even cooler air heading our way, so now, I'm gearing up for fall baking! I've been adding more recipes to my files this week, and when I came across this muffin recipe, I knew I'd be trying it and sharing it soon.
1 c. canola oil
1 c. sugar
1 c. molasses
1 c. buttermilk
3 c. all purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1 1/2 t. ginger
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350. Beat oil and sugar till creamy. Add molasses, beat till blended, add eggs and buttermilk till well blended. Combine flour, soda and spices, add to buttermilk mixture, beat well. Spoon into prepared muffins cups and bake for 22 min.. Remove, and cool. Makes 2 1/2 dozen
Needless to say, I will be baking these for our Sunday School class this weekend. Given the cooler temps., a cup of coffee and some front porch sitting time, these muffins can cure any bad mood, guaranteed!
I'm so happy to see so many of you signing up for my fall apron swap, and since it's been such a hit, YES, a Christmas apron swap will be planned! I love the idea of having a apron for each season, what a treat! You still have till Labor Day to get signed up, it's easy, just leave your name and email addy for your future partner and then you can get sewing! And wouldn't a gingerbread muffin paired with a afternoon of sewing hit the spot right about now? Enjoy!
