Tips for Great Muffins

  • Preheat the oven and put the muffins in to bake as soon as you have the muffin cups filled.
  • Mix muffin batter just until ingredients are moistened.
  • Don't fill the muffin cups more than 3/4 full.
  • Use a toothpick to test muffins for doneness. The toothpick will come out clean when the muffins are done.
  • Fruity muffins might be more prone to sticking in places. Run a knife or small metal spatula around the sides of each muffin to loosen.
  • Cool muffins completely on a rack.
  • To reheat, wrap muffins in foil and put in a preheated 325° oven for about 10 minutes.
