Clabber Girl® Baking Powder is a baking essential and something I always make sure I have. Baking powder is a leavening agent used in most baked goods. Baking powder is used to increase the volume and lighten the texture of baked goods. Clabber Girl Baking Powder is the #1 brand of baking powder in America. I trust brands that the experts use and Clabber Girl Baking Powder has been used by bakers for generations!

Muffins are one of those baked goods that can be enjoyed any time of day. My family loves them for a quick grab-and-go breakfast, mid-day snack or easy dessert after dinner. These Gingerbread Streusel Muffins are super simple to make. They are a nice addition to your holiday baking.

How To Make Gingerbread Muffins

The beauty of making muffins or quick breads is that they are so simple to make. No difficult ingredients or steps. This recipe is basically a two-bowl process. You will need a large mixing bowl for the dry ingredients and a medium mixing bowl for the wet ingredients.

Top with a generous amount of streusel on each and pop in the oven.

Tips For Making Gingerbread Streusel Muffins

Measure all of your ingredients before beginning your baking process. This makes it so much easier.

Make sure your eggs, milk and butter are at room temperature. That way, everything is on the same playing level

You can use an electric or stand mixer if you wish. But since muffins and quick bread don’t need a lot of beating, I prefer to use a whisk to mix everything together.

Don’t overbeat the batter. This will make your muffins tough and chewy.

How To Store Muffins

Gingerbread muffins will keep for up to 3 months in the freezer. Store them in an airtight container or a trusty food storage bag.

If leaving them out on the counter, make sure you wrap them up in plastic wrap to retain their freshness.

Tips For Using Baking Powder

If you have an unopened can of baking powder, be sure to check the expiration date on the bottom of the can. This date is two years after the day it was manufactured. If the date is older than two years, then there is a good chance it has lost its leavening and may not be good. Use an opened can of baking powder, within six months.

How To Store Baking Powder

Store baking powder in a cool, dry place away from heat and excess moisture.

What Is The Difference Between Baking Soda and Baking Powder?

It is definitely easy to confuse these two baking staples, but here is a brief rundown of their differences. Baking soda and baking powder are both leveners but they act differently in recipes.

Baking powder is used for baking. When baking soda is mixed with a liquid, it releases carbon dioxide bubbles. Baking powder is double acting, it reacts once when mixed with moisture and again when it is exposed to high temperatures.

Baking soda is pure bicarbonate of soda also known as sodium bicarbonate. It is an alkaline ingredient, meaning it needs something acidic (like lemon juice, vinegar or buttermilk) mixed with it to make it work. It reacts and releases bubbles of carbon dioxide. This chemical reaction adds a beautiful lift to your baked goods.
