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.

What happens when 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 you keep muffins moist after baking?
Now if the muffin is slightly past its prime where it’s turned hard and stale, just preheat your oven to 350F, sprinkle the muffin with some water (yes water) and place it a PAPER bag. Fold the bag shut (leaving room for expansion) and pop it into the warm oven for 10-15 seconds.
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.
What two textures can muffins have?
Muffins can have a bread-like or cake-like texture, depending on the method used to make them. The blending method can be used for muffins to produce a drop batter. The creaming method using solid shortening produces cake-like muffins.
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.
Why arent my muffins Fluffy?
Too much liquid – If there is too much liquid in the batter, the muffins will be very dense. Too much leavening – If there is too much baking soda or powder in the batter, muffins will rise temporarily, then collapse. This causes them to become dense.
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.
