Lemon Ginger Heaven!

26 Mar

I’ve been looking for some good Easter Sweets to share with my family over the holidays and since I have such a huge love for Ginger, I decided to bake Lemon Ginger muffins from this recipe.  I also found the adorable cups at this art store that I used to work at which is locally owned, called Richard’s.  I try to support them whenever I can because they always took such great care of me and all my art supplies throughout high school and college 🙂  They have an awesome assortment of home decor and DIY products.  My mom and I spent yesterday baking some fun treats and she’s a great helper!  She helped me get my lemon zest and cubes of ginger from the root.  Neither of us have ever cubed our own ginger but it was actually pretty easy!  Note to self: don’t eat raw ginger, it’s SO spicy and not anything like pickled ginger.  However, it left a great after taste.  Happy Monday!

They had many different colors and designs but these were the perfect Spring cups for the muffins we made.

Peeling the ginger!

The lemons came from the tree in my parents backyard and were sooo delicious!  I squeezed the juices into the glaze on the final muffins and it was so good.

I filled the cups about 3/4 full.

After they cooled and had been glazed.

I love baking with my mom.  She always is baking pies or breads so she was the perfect person to help me perfect these Spring time treats!  I highly recommend this recipe and picking someone to bake with, especially on a rainy day!

    […] everyone could have a taste but you can also make a much smaller batch.  I thought about adding ginger again since I just love the combo of the two but decided to keep it simple since I was sharing with […]
