Recipe Tips

  • A skewer is the best way to check if a cake is ready, if it comes out clean, then it is done. If it doesn’t come out clean, then it needs to be cooked further.
  • If you have the time, it might be worth putting the dry ingredients through a sieve. This extra step will help your mix rise and produce nice fluffy muffins.
  • Don’t be afraid to add some spices to the muffin mix. For example, if you’re cooking apple & cinnamon muffins, then some ground cinnamon would go amazingly well.
  • If you’re finding your muffins are browning too fast and are at risk of burning, then grease a piece of foil and place it over your muffins. This method will help prevent the muffins from browning further.
  • If you’re using frozen berries, it’s best to let them defrost a little. Otherwise, they can affect the overall cooking of the muffins.

    I’ve just found your blog and I’m already loving your videos. I’m down for anything that is dead easy! I gotta say though, I was NOT expecting that mayo. I’ve never seen that used in a muffin recipe…
