How do you keep muffins from getting soggy?
There are two great ways to keep your muffins from getting soggy. With either method, you’ll need to first ensure that your muffins are completely cooled before storing in an airtight container. You do not want the muffins to have any residual heat.
The first option is to simply add a few saltine crackers into the airtight container that you store your muffins in. The crackers will absorb the excess moisture.
The second option is to lay a paper towel out onto the bottom of your storage container. Place your muffins in on top of the paper towel in a single layer, then place an additional paper towel on top. The paper towel will absorb the excess moisture.
Can I add nuts to my chocolate chip muffins?
Yes, you can! When you add in the chocolate chips, you can also add in 1/2 cup of finely chopped nuts. Almonds, walnuts, or pecans will all work great in this recipe.
Can I freeze muffins?
Yes, you can! Muffins freeze quite well. Just pop them in the freezer. Once frozen, store in an airtight container to prevent freezer burn.
How do you make perfect domed muffin tops?
They key to a perfectly domed muffin top is to blast the batter with heat when you first place it into the oven, and then let it finish baking in a slightly cooler oven. This will cause the steam in the muffins to rapidly release, making the muffin puff up rapidly and create that perfect dome. 425 degrees Fahrenheit is a great temperature to start your muffins in. After about 7 minutes, reduce the heat in the oven to 350 degrees F. Watch your muffins closely as they finish baking as ovens vary slightly so your cooking time may vary as well. Pull your muffins out as soon as they are golden brown on top.
