Ginger Muffin

Time has come to post for the Blog Hop Wednesday hosted by Radhika Subramanian of Tickling Palates. For this week I am paired with Anu from Anu’s healthy Kitchen. I have chosen to make the most delicious cakes though it is my blog pair Anu’s birthday.


2 egg yolks
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup yogurt or sour cream
1 cup unbleached flour (whole wheat or white)
1/4 cup rye flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 to 1 tsp. ground ginger
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda


Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat egg yolks, molasses, sugar and butter together to make a smooth blend. Whisk or sift together dry ingredients until well mixed. Add yogurt or sour cream, then the dry ingredients and mix it well. Beat for 1 minute. Pour the blend into muffin cups with equal amount in each cup.Bake the muffin cups for about 30- 40 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle tops with sugar and serve.
