Step 1

Preheat your oven to 375°F. line 18 standard muffin cups with cupcake papers.

Cream the butter and sugar. add the salt and spices and mix well.

Add the egg, molasses, and water and mix until blended. the dough will be very runny.

Add the all purpose flour and mix until blended. Add the whole wheat flour and baking powder and mix until blended.

Fill each muffin cup about three quarters full. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cool in the pan for a couple minutes, remove from the pan, and finish cooling on a wire rack.

If you want to glaze your muffins, wait until completely cool. mix powdered sugar and water until it's the right consistency - not too thick, not too thin. Dip the tops of the muffins in the glaze or drizzle the glaze over the muffins.
