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 does not come out clean, then it will need to be cooked longer.
  • 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.
  • Do not be afraid to add some spices to the muffin mix. For example, if you are cooking apple and cinnamon muffins, some ground cinnamon would work nicely.
  • Muffins browning too fast are at risk of burning. Grease a piece of foil and place it over your muffins to help prevent the muffins from browning further.
  • Frozen berries are best slightly thawed. Otherwise, they can affect the overall baking of the muffins.
  • Caster sugar is sometimes called baker's sugar or superfine sugar. If you have none of those, then regular sugar should also work.
