Tips for Making Delicious Muffins

Before we dive into the recipe, I wanted to share some important tips for making muffins. If you’re more experienced with baking, you might already know this stuff and can just scroll down to the recipe.

Otherwise, I hope these tips help result in the most delicious baked goods you’ve ever had!

Use Fresh Ingredients

Start with fresh and high-quality ingredients, including flour, baking powder, eggs, and dairy products. Using fresh ingredients can significantly impact the flavor and texture of your muffins.

Measure Accurately

Use precise measurements for both dry and wet ingredients. Invest in a kitchen scale for the most accurate measurements, especially for flour and sugar.

Room Temperature Ingredients

Allow eggs and dairy products to come to room temperature before using them. This helps with proper mixing and texture.

Don’t Overmix the Batter

Mix ingredients until just mixed. This means right when they are combined, stop and resist the temptation to go further. If you overmix the batter, it can add air. Your muffins will flatten as they bake. If there are some lumps in the final mix, that is fine.

Grease the Muffin Tin or Use Liners

I’ve been asked several times if non stick means you don’t have to grease. Grease the muffin tin generously to prevent sticking. You can use butter, oil, or non-stick cooking spray.

Don’t Overfill Cups

Fill the muffin cups about 2/3 full to allow room for the muffins to rise and prevent overflow. You can go up to about 75% full to get more round tops.

Check with a Toothpick

Follow the recipe’s recommended baking time and temperature closely. Use a toothpick or cake tester to check for doneness. Insert it into the center of a muffin; if it comes out clean or with a few crumbs, they’re done.

Cool Properly

Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. This prevents them from becoming soggy.

Store Well

Store your muffins in an airtight container to keep them fresh. If they have a high moisture content, consider adding a piece of bread to help maintain moisture.

Firstly, I'm SO excited that the other side of the world is going into Summer! I'm from Australia, but my audience is certainly not, so I tailor my content to suit them and I actually have a lot of fun with it! I can't wait to create more fun, colourful, more-suited-for-Summer posts ☺️ because when I was making certain recipes during *our* Summer, people were saying it was too cold for them 😅

Whereas here in Melbourne, the weather drastically changes each day - sometimes DURING the day - so we have to be equipped for anything! I can have the air con on all day, then suddenly need to rug up with a hot drink because it became freezing out of nowhere. So my posts are a bit of everything to suit people from all around the world!

Anyway, if muffins mean Summer (although, I'd happily eat them all year long 😋) I am a-okay with that! These look delicious, and whilst I LOVE berry muffins, I don't actually think I've had strawberry muffins before 😯 They look so delicious and beautifully coloured!
