Pomegranate Ginger Muffins Recipe


Pomegranate seeds and crystallized ginger are the flavor-boosters for these muffins. These muffins are great served warm or cool.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 16 minutes

Total Time: 26 minutes


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • About 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup minced crystallized ginger
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1-1/4 cups pomegranate seeds
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • About 1/4 cup (1/8 pound) butter or margarine, melted and cooled


In a bowl, mix flour, 2/3 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in crystallized ginger, lemon peel, and pomegranate seeds. Make a well in the center.

In a measuring cup, blend milk, egg, and 1/4 cup butter. Pour liquid all at once into well. Stir just until batter is moistened; it will be lumpy.

Spoon batter into 12 (2-1/2-inch-wide) or 24 (1-3/4-inch-wide) buttered muffin cups, filling each almost to the rim. Sprinkle with 1 to 2 teaspoons sugar.

Bake in a 425-degree F oven until lightly browned, about 16 minutes for large muffins, 13 minutes for small. Remove muffins from pan at once. Serve hot or set on a rack and serve warm or cool.
