  • One box Krusteaz Cinnamon Crumb Cake & Muffin Mix
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup molasses not blackstrap
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup crystallized ginger pieces optional but recommended
  • One pouch crumb topping mix included in the box mix
  • 3 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place 12 muffin liners into a standard muffin pan. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the crumb cake mix, water, molasses, and egg until blended. Batter will be slightly lumpy. Fold in the ginger chips.
  • Distribute the muffin batter evenly among the muffin cups, filling about ⅔ full. In a small separate bowl, add in the crumb topping mix, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, and ground cloves and mix until blended. Sprinkle a liberal heaping tablespoon of the cinnamon crumb topping over the tops of the muffins.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of the muffin comes out clean. Cool completely before serving.
