How do I get my muffins to rise higher?
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.

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 does adding an extra egg do 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. This helps create a moister and sweeter cake that will still bake up with a good structure rather than falling into a gooey mass.
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 it better to use fresh or frozen blueberries for muffins?
Frozen blueberries will almost “melt” when you bake the muffins, because the skin becomes more fragile after freezing. If you use fresh blueberries, they will be more intact after baking and will sometimes still “burst” when you bite into them. As for the taste, some blueberries will have more taste than others.
What makes 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.
How do you know when muffins are ready?
Check for doneness by touching the muffin top lightly and it will spring back when ready. Or, insert a toothpick near the center ( muffins, quick bread, or cornbread.) It will be free of batter when baked through.
Why do my muffins sink when they come outta the oven?
When the cell structure doesn’t set, the air spaces created by the leavening in the recipe collapses, causing the muffin to sink. Oven temperatures vary over time. If it comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs clinging to the pick, the muffin is done.
What to do with muffins that didn’t turn out?
Don’t let those extra muffins go to waste! Whether they are getting stale or are starting to crumble, leftover muffins make amazing bread pudding.
- Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Grease a baking dish.
- Add the eggs, milk and sugar (and fruit) to the baking dish.

What is the best flour to use for muffins?
You can use either all-purpose flour or pastry flour; all-purpose flour gives you a sturdier muffin while a pastry flour muffin will be lighter and more delicate. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla, vegetable oil or butter, and eggs.

How do you keep blueberries from sinking in muffins?
