Magnificent Muffin Baking Hints

 Ingredients List

  • Baking a magnificent muffin is quick and easy. All you need is some basic
  • equipment and an understanding of how to prepare your batter.
  • The basis of muffin baking is to create a DRY and a MOIST mixture in
  • separate bowls. They are then combined quickly with a minimum amount of
  • stirring. You want to moisten the dry mixture, but still have a lumpy
  • batter. The batter should then be put immediately into the muffin tins and
  • baked with careful attention to the required oven temperature.
  • Here are a few quick tips for baking a magnificent muffin:
  • Remember that there is a very real difference between 'All-Purpose Flour'
  • and 'Cake and Pastry Flour'. Be sure to use the type specified for the
  • recipe.
  • Even if you buy pre-sifted flour, you will get better results by sifting
  • and then measuring.
  • DO NOT OVERMIX you batter or the result will be a tough muffin with poor
  • texture.
  • When combining the moist and dry mixtures, always make a well in the dry
  • and pour the moist into the well. Stir the two until combined, but still
  • lumpy.
  • Prepare the cups by greasing lightly. If you have non stick, no greasing
  • is necessary.
  • ALWAYS preheat your oven.
  • If you have muffin cups that do not have batter in them, fill them half way
  • with water while the tray is in the oven. This will make sure that the
  • muffins will bake evenly.
  • Always test your muffins for doneness. A muffin shoul not be spongy on the
  • top but should be spring to firm. A Toothpick inserted in the center of
  • the muffin should come out clean if it is completely baked.
  • Baked muffins should be cooled briefly in the muffin tins and then removed
  • to racks.
  • If you are planning on FREEZING, be sure they are completely cooled to room
  • temperature before you wrap then in foil and freeze them.
