Tips & Tricks

  1. Don’t Overmix: When combining the wet and dry ingredients, be careful not to overmix the batter. Overmixing can lead to dense and tough muffins. It’s okay if there are a few lumps in the batter – they’ll disappear during baking.
  2. Customize Your Mix-Ins: Experiment with different mix-ins to create your own unique flavor combinations. Try adding fresh berries, chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or even a swirl of peanut butter or Nutella for extra indulgence.
  3. Fill Muffin Cups to the Top: For tall, bakery-style muffins, fill the muffin cups all the way to the top with batter. This will result in muffins with a nice domed top.
  4. Use Muffin Liners: To prevent sticking and make cleanup easier, use paper or silicone muffin liners in your muffin pan.
  5. Check for Doneness: To ensure your muffins are fully baked, insert a toothpick into the center of a muffin. If it comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs, they’re done. If there’s wet batter on the toothpick, bake for a few more minutes and retest.
  6. Cool Completely Before Storing: Allow the muffins to cool completely on a wire rack before storing them. This prevents condensation from forming and keeps the muffins from becoming soggy.
  7. Freeze for Later: These muffins freeze well, so you can make a big batch and store them in the freezer for later. Simply wrap them individually in plastic wrap or foil and place them in a resealable freezer bag. To reheat, microwave for a few seconds or bake in a preheated oven until warmed through.
