Gingerbread Muffins


You might not think to make gingerbread in the summer, but why not?  It’s delicious.  Sure I didn’t make a gingerbread house or gingerbread men and women, but I did make muffins.  Nothing wrong with that.  Top with a little powdered sugar and/or raspberry jam and you have one amazing breakfast or snack.
