Making great muffins 

Don’t over mix your batter. Just like with cakes and pancakes, you want to mix until the batter is just combined.

Mixing too much can lead to tough muffins. So mix by hand and just until it is a uniform batter.

If you’d like to whip up the batter the night ahead, just cover and refrigerate it until you are ready to bake it up. The rested batter rises well and has a super tender crumb.

Feel free to toss in a handful of dried cranberries, nuts, or chocolate chips if you so desire. The are wonderful on their own, but a few mix ins never hurt a thing! 

I love using a large cookie scoop to portion out the batter. It makes the muffins uniform in size and keeps the mess to a minimum.

If you don’t have a large cookie scoop, an ice cream scoop also works. Just fill it just shy of full.

You can use a greased muffin tin or line the wells with paper cupcake liners. Both methods work fabulously.

Storing your muffins

I love baking up a batch or two of muffins on the weekend and enjoying some fresh. Then I freeze the rest for later.

You can grab a frozen muffin and stick it in the microwave for ten to fifteen seconds and it’s like having a fresh from the oven muffin! If you have a few flavors of muffins in the freezer, you can keep things interesting with no effort during the week.

If you think you are going to gobble up the batch within a week of baking you can store them in an airtight container on the counter. They should stay fresh and delicious!
