Follow these tips to avoid dry muffins. It's a secret so don't tell anyone!
Adding Ingredients: Standard muffin recipes use milk. Instead opt for buttermilk, yogurt, or sour cream. It improves the texture.
Baking: Overbaking or underbaking can change the consistency of your muffins. If they are taken out of the oven too soon, they can be sticky and unevenly cooked. Bake them too long, and chances are, you'll end up with dry muffins.
It can be fun whipping batter but don't get carried away! Overmixing muffins crushes air bubbles and ensures your muffins will be chewy and not fluffy. Overmixing can lead to the development of gluten strands which cause muffins to be tough.
If you want light, moist muffins, mix the wet and dry ingredients just until no more flour is visible.
This recipe is simple, quick, and easy. Not to mention, the result is an amazingly tender and sweet muffin with bursting blueberries! To make these blueberry muffins, start by mixing together the ingredients to make the streusel topping and put it in the freezer (this ensures that the streusel topping won't melt while baking in the oven).
Then simply combine all of the dry ingredients and whisk together. In a separate bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients and whisk together. Combine the dry and the wet ingredients and add to the muffin pan. Sprinkle the streusel on top and bake.
Yep! It's that simple to make these blueberry muffins!
The highlight of these blueberry muffins is the sweet, buttery streusel topping. With only 5-ingredients, you can whip up this topping in just a few minutes. Just prepare it before you start the muffins.
In a small bowl, combine melted butter, flour, sugar, salt, and vanilla extract. Spoon together until little crumbles form and place in the freezer. When the muffins are ready to bake, take the crumb topping out of the freezer and place it on top of the muffin batter. It's as simple as that!
If you're baking a batch of muffins, chances are, you won't finish them in one sitting. The best methods for storing muffins are at room temperature or in the freezer.
This is ideal if you plan to eat the next day. Keep them at room temperature in a sealed container. Place a paper towel between muffins if layering. Muffins will keep fresh for up to three days.
Store in the Freezer: If you want them to last longer, you can freeze the muffins. Then you can defrost them when you're ready for more. You can either let them defrost on the counter overnight or just pop one in the microwave. Muffins can last up to 3 months this way.
Avoid placing muffins in the fridge because they will dry out.
