Books & Cooks: Turmeric Cardamom Muffins


Spring is here, and what better way to celebrate than with delicious baked goods? The turmeric and cardamom add a slight savory hint to balance the sweetness in these bright and tasty muffins. We hope you enjoy them!


  • 3 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp cardamom
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350°F. While the oven is preheating, grease your muffin tin or use cupcake liners.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, turmeric, baking powder, salt, cardamom, cinnamon, and black pepper. Then, whisk in oil. In a separate bowl whisk sugar and milk until the sugar dissolves. Once dissolved, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.

Scoop batter into muffin tin. Try to keep each tin relatively equal so they bake evenly. Bake 25 to 35 minutes until tops begin to brown
