Tips and Tricks for Baking Muffins

How to Bake Perfect Muffins

A. Leavening

Muffins rely on a good leavening to help them rise. Unlike cupcakes, muffins are not beaten to incorporate air.

Make sure the baking soda you use is fresh. Here’s an easy test! Add 1 teaspoon to 1/4 cup vinegar. It should sizzle and foam up. This ensures the ingredients are active.

B. Keep Dry and Wet Ingredients in Separate Bowls

Do not mix together until everything is ready. Then, make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.  From there, pour in the wet. This ensures even distribution of the wet ingredients into the dry.

C. Fold in Blueberries at the End

You don’t want to over mix muffins. Gently fold blueberries in at the end.

Can I use fresh blueberries in the Blueberry Oatmeal Banana Muffins?

Yes! We suggest waiting until small wild blueberries are in season. Not only will it give you a better final product, but it will taste better to.

Can I use frozen blueberries?

Unfortunately no. Frozen berries will clump up the batter and turn the batter purple.
