How do you sweeten blueberries for muffins?
Toss them in sugar, honey, or maple syrup, along with a little fresh juice or alcohol (an herbal liqueur, like elderflower spirit, would be great). You don’t need a lot to get the berries rocking; a quarter- to a half-cup of juice or booze, and about double the amount of sugar, is all you need.
What kind of sugar do you sprinkle on top of muffins?
Sprinkle granulated sugar over the muffin batter for a sweet crust. Measure about 0.25 cups (59 ml) of granulated sugar and use a pinch or 2 for each muffin to create a thin layer. This way, the sugar will bake into the batter and create a delicious, crunchy crust on the muffin tops.
How do you make baked muffins sweeter?
While the muffins are cooling, mix 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon in a small bowl and melt 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter in a small saucepan. After the baked muffins have cooled 5 minutes, working one at a time, dip the top of each muffin in melted butter and then cinnamon sugar.
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.
How do you keep blueberries from sinking in muffins?
