This will be my first time participating in the Improv Challenge hosted by Kristen over at Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker. Each month two ingredients are selected, this month was carrot and ginger, and you must come up with a new to your blog recipe using both ingredients. Loads of fun and oppurtunity to create something new and delicious. I took the easy way out, using a muffin mix, after all I am on vacation. Here is what I came up with:
1 7.6 oz pkg lemon poppy seed muffin mix
2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup minced or shredded carrot
1/4 cup dried cranberries
cream cheese icing, optional
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray six muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray or line with baking cups. Mix together muffin mix and ginger. Add milk, stirring until just moistened. Stir in carrots and cranberries. Divide into muffin cups.
