What’s the difference between cake mix and muffin mix?
The quantity of sugar and butter is higher in cakes/cupcakes than in muffins. The blending procedure and the consistency of the batter separates cakes/cupcakes and muffins. Cupcakes are made by creaming the sugar and butter together to make a smooth, cushioned batter.

What is the secret to making moist muffins?
Why muffins come out dry and crumbly The main cause of dry, hard muffins is over-mixing the batter and overcooking the muffins. So the the 3 simple secrets for beautifully soft and moist blueberry muffins are: use butter AND oil -butter makes things tasty but oil makes things moist. So use both!
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 do I make my muffins light 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.
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!).
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.
Is Betty Crocker muffin mix better with milk or water?
A. We don’t recommend using milk instead of water because the milk can make holes in the paper liners or the sides of the muffins.
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.
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.
What should you do to berries to keep them from sinking to the bottom of the muffin while baking?
Another and far more effective method, to prevent sunken berries is to spoon a third of the batter into the muffin trays and then fold the berries into the remaining muffin batter. Spoon this on top of the berry-less batter.
