Erika's Gingerbread Muffins

2 Eggs
2/3 c. oil
1 c. molasses
1/2 c. sugar
3 c. flour
2 t. baking soda
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. ginger
1 c. boiling water

In a medium bowl beat eggs, oil, molasses and sugar, mixing well. Sift together dry ingredients in a large bowl and add egg mixture. Stir in water, mixing well. Fill greased or paper muffin cups 2/3 full. Sprinkle tops lightly with sugar. bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
Sprinkle powdered sugar in top

*Also good with buttermilk or maple syrup drizzled on top

With fall soon approaching, I feel the need to bake. The smell of gingerbread somehow makes me long for those long cool crisp evenings and long winter nights. These muffins are the perfect cure! Yum!
