I’ve already professed my love for Ginger, and my regular use of Wakaya Perfection Organic Ginger Powder. Well today, two new recipes popped up in my inbox, and I thought I’d share!
Fresh Mint-Ginger Lemonade
1 shot of Cumquat or Bush Lemon Juice
1 shot of Sugar Syrup
1 tsp. Wakaya Perfection Organic Ginger Powder
2 shots of water and crushed ice
Pour all ingredients into a shaker… shake… and pour into a glass. Enjoy.
Wakaya Perfection Organic Ginger Muffins
2 cups of flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. Wakaya Perfection Organic Ginger Powder
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 lb. butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup milk
Prehead oven to 425 degrees and grease a 12 cup muffin pan.
-sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and spices
-in another bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy, using an electric mixer
-add eggs, one at a time, beating well and scraping down sides of the bowl between additions
-add corn syrup and milk and beat until well combined
-add flour mixture in batches, beating until mixture is combined
-fill muffin pans 3/4 full and bake in middle of oven until tester comes out clean… about 17 minutes.
***Here are my substitutions for some of the ingredients:
Flour = Rice Flour
Butter = Grapeseed or Rice Bran or Olive Oil
Sugar = Raw Sugar
Corn Syrup = Agave
Milk = Almond or Soy Milk
The substitutions result in a less ‘sweet’ version of this muffin, which I prefer. ***
