What are 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Making Muffins?

  • Over mixing the batter.  Once it’s mixed, stop.
  • Under filling the muffin tin will lead to small non-poofy tops of the muffins.
  • Forgetting to spray the muffin tin will lead to stuck muffins.
  • Overfilling the muffin tin will not give you that beautiful top on the muffin.
  • Under baking.  Use a toothpick and make sure it comes out clean. Check a couple muffins to be sure.
