Carrot-Gingerbread Muffins with Cranberries

December 21, 2008 | Breads, Desserts


My house fills up over the holidays with kids and visiting friends and family. A freshly baked muffin stands in well for breakfast or an afternoon pick me up with a cup of coffee. You can use this recipe to make standard size muffins, mini muffins, or loaves – just make sure to test the cooking time with a toothpick and remove as soon as the toothpick comes out clean.
