Gingerbread Muffins

It’s been a big day of baking here today as I fill the freezer with muffins and other baked goodies in preparation for the kids going back to school and uni. Muffins are perfect because they freeze so well and will last in the freezer for up to 3 months.

When I’m packing school lunches, I simply take one from the container in the freezer, pop it in the kids lunchboxes and it’s defrosted by morning tea … easy! So, here’s another delicious flavour to add to your collection. Enjoy!
