Tips

  • Don’t Overfill Your Muffin Pan – Fill each cavity 2/3 full to compensate for rise.
  • Use the Toothpick Test – Insert a toothpick in the center of a muffin. When it comes out clean, it’s done.
  • Mini vs Full Sized Muffins – Most muffin recipes can be converted between mini and full sized cavities. Just bake mini muffins for less time – they will generally need anywhere from 12-17 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are bakery muffins so much better?

Often, home bakers could be overbaking their muffins, which results in less moisture. Muffins will rarely need to be baked for longer than 20 minutes.

What flour is best for muffins?

Unless a recipe calls for another option, it’s best to stick with traditional all-purpose flour for your muffin recipes. Bleached flour is a little softer and whiter in color, vs. unbleached – it’s a personal preference for most recipes!
