How to Make Better Muffins

Posted On : 11 September 2014 | Category : All Hints & Tips, How To

Want to whip up moist, light-textured, perfectly shaped muffins? With a little know-how, you’ll avoid them overflowing or turning out tough and rubbery. Follow these easy muffin baking tips.

Tip 1:
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour the combined liquid ingredients into the well. Begin mixing the ingredients from the centre until just combined. This gradually incorporates the ingredients to ensure a smooth batter.

Tip 2:
For a light texture, be careful not to over-mix the batter. If adding choc-chips or dried fruit, mix until just combined.

Tip 3:
Fill each lined muffin pan two-thirds full. If you overfill, they may overflow, giving your muffins a mushroom-top appearance.
