How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 12-cup muffin tin.
  • In a food processor, combine lime zest from the two limes and turbinado sugar. With the machine running, add the fresh ginger and process until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, ground ginger, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  • In a large bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and 1 tsp lime zest until fluffy, about 3 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping, mix 1-2 minutes. Add the flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating it with the buttermilk. Mix thoroughly and scrape down the sides of the bowl between additions. Fold in the 1/4 cup of crystallized ginger and raisins (optional).
  • Divide the batter between the cups of the prepared muffin tin, filling each 3/4 full. Scatter a scant tsp of turbinado sugar mixture over each muffin and sprinkle with remaining 2 tbs crystallzed ginger. Bake until puffed and golden brown, about 20 minutes. Do not overbake. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack.
