Description

These ginger muffins are a variant of a traditional Swedish spice cake called mjuk pepparkaka in Swedish. Spiced with cinnamon, ginger, and cloves, these muffins are aromatic and rich in flavor. Bake time is 20 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out clean. Decorate the muffins with almond flavored purple sugar for a unique and elegant finish. Best served around winter time with a cup of hot tea or coffee.
