Ginger Muffins

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

There is a lot of evidence of health benefits of ginger and a lot of information on its uses. Ginger is a hot, pungent smelling herb. It is used in a fresh form and also dry powdered form. It is one of the most important ingredients of Indian food as it adds a subtle flavor and taste when cooked, along with it's benefits. It's always a good idea to incorporate beneficial ingredients into our daily diet and make sure our kids eat it them too. However, getting picky eaters eat ginger is hard and I found a smart way of sneaking it into muffins and the kids enjoyed them without any fuss or questions:) Every bite has a burst of flavor and a hint of heat. And, of course the olive oil gave the crumbs a soft texture.

Ingredients:

All purpose flour-2 cups
Salt-1/2 tsp
Baking powder-1 tsp
Sugar-1 cup
Olive oil-1 cup
Eggs-4
Milk-1-2 tbs
Ginger-1/2 cup grated

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to a 400 deg F.

2..Sift together the flour, salt and the baking powder a couple times and set aside.

3. Beat eggs until frothy.

4. Add sugar, eggs and oil to the beaten egg and whisk.

5. Slowly add the flour, a a tbs  at a time into the egg mixture and mix.

6. Add the milk  along with the grated ginger and whisk again until the batter is a little thicker than a pancake batter, without lumps.

7. Line a muffin tin with muffin cups.

8. Pour the batter into the cups only 3/4 of each and leave some room for the muffins to rise.

9. Put the muffin tray into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes until the tops of the muffins  turn to  a golden color.

10. Do the toothpick test and if the tooth pick comes out clean, remove the tin and leave it aside to cool a little bit.

11. Remove from the tin and let cool completely before serving.

12. Enjoy!
