Gingerbread Muffins

Today we celebrate Lucia in Sweden, with girls in white gowns and a crown of candles singing Christmas carols. One of my favourite traditions! Saffron buns and gingerbread are a must on this day, and here’s a moist muffin with gingerbread spices, icing and pomegranate arils. They were delicious!
100 g vegan butter
2,5 dl brown sugar
1 dl aquafaba
1,5 dl oat milk (use the barista type if you have it)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
3 dl plain flour
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1,5 tsp ginger
2 tsp baking powder
1 dl powdered sugar + 1 tbsp lemon juice for icing
Mix butter and sugar, using a food processor or hand mixer. Add the aquafaba, milk and vinegar.
Combine the flour, spices and baking powder in a separate bowl. Add the mix to the wet batter.
Pour the batter in 10-12 muffin cups. Bake for 12-15 minutes at 225 C. Let cool.
Stir powdered sugar with lemon juice until wet, adding a tsp of cold water if necessary. Glaze the muffins and leave to harden for 15 minutes. Decorate with pomegranate just before serving.
