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, butter, 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.

Remember that practice makes perfect, so don’t be discouraged if your first batch isn’t perfect. With time and experience, you’ll become a master muffin baker.

To make these confetti mini muffins, here’s what you’re going to need.


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles

Tips and Thoughts for This Recipe

A small ladle or ice cream scoop works well for transferring the batter into the muffin cups without making a mess.

To keep those sprinkles perfectly suspended in the mix so each muffin is evenly dotted with color – shake them in flour before combining them with the batter.

Once completely cooled, place in an airtight container for up to three days at room temperature. You can store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to five days.
