What Makes Some Muffins Light and Fluffy?
Some will tell you it’s the baking soda or the baking powder. That may be true with baking, but I believe it’s simple ingredients along with simple steps and most of all, not to overbeat or over-blend the ingredients. This will make your muffins will be simply delicious.
What Makes Muffins Moist?
Some will argue it’s the wet ingredients, but for some muffins, it’s the veggies and the mashed fruits incorporated into the ingredients that add moisture to the muffins. What do you think gives moisture to muffins? Tell us your opinion, we’d love to know.
What is the Difference Between a Muffin and a Cupcake?
Muffins, in general, are meant to be savory foods, whereas in contrast to a cupcake that is sweeter in taste and softer textures, Also, cupcake recipes generally have more sugar and fat (butter, oil, or dairy) than muffins.
How To Store, Freeze and Reheat Muffins…
- Make a batch of muffins ahead of time, allow them to cool completely and place them into zip lock bags and freeze them. They will freeze beautifully for up to 2 months. Any longer and they will develop freezer burn.
- Just before serving, allow the muffins to thaw on the counter.
- Then pop them into a warm oven for about 2 minutes and serve them with some milk, tea, or coffee.
