Tips for Making and Storing Muffins
These muffins are guaranteed to become a new staple recipe in your kitchen. Here are a few things to keep in mind.
- This is an amazing basic muffin recipe – the proportions are perfect. We also make these with dried and fresh fruit and even nuts to change up the flavor.
- As with most baked goods, do not over mix the batter. Stopping just after incorporating the wet and dry ingredients will produce light and fluffy muffins.
- I like to use muffin cups but you can grease the muffin tin, as well.
- This recipe can be doubled. Most of the time, we make half chocolate and then use up blueberries or strawberries from the refrigerator for the other half.
- Muffins freeze very well. Be sure to let them come to room temperature before putting them in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature.
