Cuisine: Muffins
Serves: 12
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 1 /3 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • Pinch pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup rice flour
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon gelatin, xanthan gum, or guar gum
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a 12 hole muffin pan with muffin liners.
  2. Combine the molasses, brown sugar, and olive oil.
  3. Beat the egg in with a fork.
  4. Stir in the sour cream.
  5. Add the baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, pepper, and salt. Stir until mixed.
  6. Add the rice flour, cornstarch, and gelatin and stir until just mixed.
  7. Fill the muffin holes and bake for 20-27 minutes, until muffins are pretty firm to the touch and a knife inserted in the center comes out mostly clean (a few dry crumbs are okay, just no streaks).
