Should I thaw frozen berries before baking?
In most cases, you don’t want to thaw your berries before using them in baking recipes. I always roll my frozen berries in a little bowl of flour and coat them well before adding them to batters to prevent this even further. So bake away with fresh fruit straight from the farmers’ market or your freezer.
Is it better to bake with fresh or frozen blueberries?
Frozen blueberries can be preferential in baking because they help prevent sinking and are less likely to burst during cook-time. If you are cooking with blueberries, you can almost always replace fresh with frozen.
What happens if you add an extra egg to muffins?
Because emulsifiers hold water and fat together, adding extra egg yolks to the batter enables the batter to hold extra liquid and, consequently, extra sugar.
How can I make my muffins lighter and fluffy?
Muffins use baking powder or baking soda, or both, to generate the “rise” that makes them light and fluffy. Use too little and they won’t rise enough, use too much and they will rise quickly and then collapse.
Is butter or oil better for muffins?
The texture of cakes made with oil is—in general—superior to the texture of cakes made with butter. Oil cakes tend to bake up loftier with a more even crumb and stay moist and tender far longer than cakes made with butter. Cakes made with butter often taste better than oil cakes.
How do you get muffins to rise high?
If you put the batter into a warm oven, the muffins may not rise as beautifully. Stir all your dry ingredients together very well with a whisk. The idea is to distribute the leavening agents (baking powder or baking soda) evenly throughout the batter so that the muffins will achieve a lovely texture and a good rise.
Why are blueberry muffins bad for you?
Reduced fat blueberry muffins are certainly no better—if not worse. With only slightly fewer calories than their regular counterparts, they still contain the same high amount of sugar (almost 40 grams, or 10 teaspoons) and nearly 50 percent more sodium (a whopping 540 milligrams per muffin!).
Is Betty Crocker muffin mix better with milk or water?

Will muffins rise without baking powder?
1. To make these little cakes rise and give them their typical shape, it is possible to use cider vinegar and baking soda, instead of chemical baking powder. The muffin mixture should be rather thick and never too liquid, because an excessively liquid mixture would not bake so well in the oven.
