How to Make Muffins
These tips and techniques will make you a master muffin maker in no time:
Muffin paper liners work well but they can cause the muffin to fall apart so for perfect muffins every time just lightly spray the
muffin cups, including the top of the pan, with some cooking spray.
The key to fluffy muffins is to not overmix the ingredients. Always add wet to dry ingredients and mix with as few strokes as
possible (lumps are okay, even a few streaks of flour).
FOLD don't stir items like fruit, nuts, etc. into mixture. How to fold: The lighter mixture (i.e. blueberries) is placed on top of the
heavier mixture, then the two are combined by passing a spatula down through the mixture, across the bottom, and up over the top.
This process continues until the mixtures are combined.

If you want to mix in fresh or frozen fruit, then reduce the liquid in your wet ingredients. This way the batter will be thicker which helps
to keep the fruit from sinking to the bottom during the baking process.
If you are using a muffin recipe that calls for a lot of mix-ins like grated fruit, nuts, etc., then increase your bake-time to prevent the center from
being gooey and undercooked.
Most muffins are very versatile. So be creative with substitutes, they are not likely to hurt the recipe. For example, oil in any
muffin recipe can be substituted for applesauce, pumpkin puree, cooked and pureed carrots, squash, mashed banana, pudding, etc. Go for whatever tempts
your taste buds!
If you use a standard cupcake tin, your tasty treats should be ready within 18 - 22 minutes provided you only fill each one 2/3 full and bake
at 375 degrees F. They are done when a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Make the best muffins even better (for you) by substituting the all purpose flour for a whole grain flour.
Just add 2 teaspoons of wheat gluten to ensure fluffiness, reduce heat by 25 degrees F and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of
a muffin comes out clean.
Whole wheat flour is an obvious substitute. Worried about compromising flavor and texture? Don't be! There are many types of whole
wheat flours that are sweeter and lighter. Hard white wheat flour creates similar results as all white
but is much better for you. There are other choices, too, like kamut flour, spelt flour,
oat flour, and teff flour. These are all healthier alternatives. So explore...discover...and ENJOY!
