Molasses Muffins

This is a new recipe I picked up from a Lincoln Heritage Trail Cook Book on own Land of Lincoln adventure this week and since it is Sunday am sharing it.  The book has some great old recipes in it that I’ll be making and sharing with you.  The picture is Sawyer standing in front of Lincoln’s Springfield home where he lived before he moved to Washington DC to be President.   We toured the home and it had a very tiny kitchen.

According to the cook book, Lincoln these muffins were one of his favorite foods. 

Molasses Muffins

2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. soda
2 tbsp. melted butter
½ cup buttermilk
½ cup molasses
1 egg

Mix flour, baking powder, salt and soda together.  Add melted butter, buttermilk, molasses and egg.  Stir well; pour into hot greased muffin tins.  Bake at 400°
For 25 minutes.  Makes a dozen. 

Have a great Sunday, be happy and may God bless you and yours.
