'Jason's Deli's' Gingerbread Mini-Muffins

Whenever my parents come to town we - the family - go out to dinner. Most often we head to our favorite Mexican food restaurant, but this past Monday we ended up at Jason's Deli. It was a rainy cold night here in North Texas and we were in search of warm soup. It's been awhile since I've been to Jason's Deli and had gone entirely TOO long without some of their wonderfully famous Gingerbread Muffins. I ask you, "Is there anything better than HOT gingerbread muffins on a cold rainy night?" Well I don't know about you but it was just what I needed, warm and spicy they made me feel better all over. I immediately came home and started looking for a version of this recipe and here's what I found. I already have a fantastic gingerbread recipe, but there's something different about these muffins. They are dark and sticky sweet with a hint of exotic spices. Now I know that sounds REALLY over-the-top flowerdy, but if you've ever eaten these muffins I'm sure you'll agree. Check out the recipe below and see if you don't agree. If your interested here is my children's favorite gingerbread - it is out of this world good as well! Either way you WON'T be sorry for trying them! Have fun my friends!

The taste of Christmas and the comfort of home all in one muffin.

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). Spray/butter muffin tins; set aside.
  • Combine sugar, flour, soda, salt and spices in a bowl.
  • In a separate bowl mix the egg, molasses, milk, and butter.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just blended.
  • Add to muffin tins, about 3/4 full. Adding the batter to a Ziploc bag and snipping the corner is an easy almost mess-free way to fill tins. 
  • Bake for 15 minutes. If making normal sized muffins, it’ll be more like 20 minutes. Muffins are done when a toothpick comes out clean.
**Of course you could make these as normal sized muffins or even a whole loaf, but it's just not the same!

....and this is how I eat these sweet little gems....

Uhhmmmmm! YUM!

  1. Thanks for the recipe. My mom asked me to find a recipe for the Jason's Deli mini muffins so I tried this one. I had a muffin from the restaurant to compare with. For some reason theirs are so dark they are almost black. Doesn't really matter, just wondering why that is. I will say that the JD muffins have a lot more cloves in them, so if I make this recipe again I will probably do 1/2 teaspoon instead of the listed 1/8 tsp.

  2. I like having these muffins with my dessert. Instead of the ice cream I top them with the Chocolate Mousse available at the salad bar. But I bet you it would be great with the banana pudding and the fruit & vanilla pudding mixture.

  3. I enjoy these muffins with their gumbo. Exciting pop of flavor! Thanks for recipe.

  5. I just made these and mine are not close to as dark brown as the originals. also i can take the second batch out sooner than the recommended Do My Homework | Pro Homework Help minutes due to oven temp variations due to the fact first batch is sort of dry. now not close to as moist as originals however not positive less cooking time will assist with that.

  8. Sitting in the recreation center making hoops, or wire wrapping stones, is an extraordinary method to pull individuals over to talk. It's a magnet for children all things considered.
