Gingerbread Muffins

Note: Since building our gingerbread houses, my hubs and boys have developed a new love for gingerbread. I don't think any of the gingerbread snowmen ended up on their houses because they were eating all of them. These muffins should satisfy their new enjoyment of gingerbread.

Gingerbread Muffins

2 C All Purpose flour
1/4 C sugar
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
1 egg
3/4 C milk
1/4 C vegetable oil
1/4 C molasses

Preheat oven to 375*. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and cloves. In another bowl, whisk the gg, milk, oil and molasses until smooth. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fill paper-lined muffin cups half full. Bake 15 to 20 minutes (mine only took 15 so be careful not to overbake). Toothpick should come out clean. Cool 5 minutes in pan before removing to wire rack. Serve warm.
