I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t always been the biggest fan of gingerbread. Actually, I used to despise it. It kind of tasted like day old tea and soap to me.
Plain gingerbread cookies, or to be fair, gingerbread anything just turned me off no matter how hard I wanted to like it. Slowly I adjusted and started to enjoy making gingerbread houses which made the gingerbread flavor kind of fun to me, if that makes any sense at all. But emphasis on the “kind of”.
Then that evolved into gingerbread lattes. Coffee, contrary to gingerbread, was and still is one of my absolute favorite things on the planet. So how could gingerbread not taste good with it? It was delish.
And so on and so forth, I kept trying gingerbread, and gingerbread flavored things, and slowly but surely I came to like it! Maybe my tastebuds matured, or maybe I matured, or maybe the gingerbread flavor evolved over time. But somewhere, somehow, something changed for me and damn am I glad it did, or these delicious, festive muffins would’ve never seen the light of day!
