Recipes Tips

If you want to add a little bit of texture to your muffin tops, you can add some chopped nuts or chocolate chips to the batter before baking. You can also experiment with different flavors by adding some lemon zest, cinnamon, or other spices to the mix.

When measuring the flour, make sure to spoon it into the measuring cup and level it off with a knife. This will ensure that you don't add too much flour to the recipe, which can result in dry and crumbly muffin tops.

Don't overmix the batter, as this can result in tough muffin tops. Mix until just combined, and then stop.
