Improv day is here!

Thanks to Kristen who is the great host of
Improv Challenge 
for deciding that carrot and ginger should be the focus this month. 
Fab, fab combo.
I’ve added my own little twist and created a super muffin that I already have requests to make again.
Carrot Gingerbread Muffins
(as always I make a huge batch so that they don’t disappear in two seconds; this recipe makes 12 humungous muffins or 24 regular sized ones)
Start with; 3 cups of grated carrot, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup of butter.
Add; 1 1/2 cups mollasses, 2 T. chopped, crystalized ginger, 4 tsp. ground ginger, 2 tsp. cinnamon, pinch cloves and 4 eggs.
Add 4 cups flour, 2 tsp. baking powder and 1 tsp. baking soda.
Stir until just combined and pour into muffins tins.
Bake for 15 minutes at 350 (or until a knife comes out cleanly when inserted)

    Oh yum and I love the pan you used. This certainly was a fun challenge and I loved that carrot and ginger was selected :)

    Carrot Gingerbread muffins? That is a brilliant combination! I bet I could sneak those carrots in on Levi in a Gingerbread muffin and he would be none the wiser. Of course…the little strips of orange would have to be fixed. Carrot Baby food perhaps? Yum!

    I love the tin you used for your muffins. Sometimes the shape is enough so that you just don't even need to bother with frosting. (unless it's my husband we are talking about…he must have frosting on EVERYTHING).

    Oh I love your fancy muffin tin! It just makes the muffins so special. They, as always, look delicious. Happy Friday Jane!

    Mmmm, I love that you threw in gingerbread spices! How perfect :) Well done with the challenge, I love how many people made desserts when I could only think savory!

    I love carrot/ginger combos! I just had a great carrot/ginger soup last week that I'm still thinking about!
