Gingerbread Muffins

i always start to crave gingerbread around christmas time. i made these muffins for moms and tots this morning. they were easy to make and really good. here's the recipe...

...recipe from Feast: Food to Celebrate Life by nigella lawson
250g flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 egg
50g dark muscavado sugar
50g light muscavado sugar
150 milliliters full fat milk
1/4 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 tablespoons golden syrup
4 tablespoons black treacle

Preheat oven to 200 C. Line 12 muffin tins with papers.

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and spices in a large bowl. Whisk egg in a large measuring jug then add the sugars, breaking up any lumps. Add the milk and vinegar then measure in the oil with a tablespoon. Use the same oily spoon to add the syrup and the treacle so they don't stick to it. Whisk the mixture to combine and add to the flour and spices. Stir until mixed but still fairly lumpy.

Spoon or pour the mixture inot the muffin papers and bake for about 20 minutes until the tops are dry. The muffins with still feel squidgy when you take them out to put them on a rack to cool.
