Very tasty and a great change of pace from fruit muffins! Pretty much like gingerbread made in a muffin tin, a little bit firmer, it reminds me of pumpkin bread. They are very moist and flavorful. I served them at a brunch for my Mom and she liked them so much she asked for the recipe - can't get any higher praise than that! Read More

These are tasty little muffin bites. I will definitely make them again. I found the flavour a little more subtle then I would have liked and will kick it up with a bit more ginger next time, but they are a beautiful treat! Read More

very good recipe! I added 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips to them. Next time I will add a pinch of salt to bring out the flavors better. Read More
