Muffins in a Jiffy.........



When you talk of muffins you will think of Kenny Roger's muffins. You can make your own in the comfort of your own kitchen to be share out with friends for tea. Muffins taste so much like a normal butter cake and it does not need much effort to make. With all the ingredients that comes ready mix in many flavors in baking specialist shop you will have muffins on your table in a jiffy.

But let me give some good tips on how to make a soft muffin. Some muffins turn out to be hard and too dry. The reason lies in the skill in mixing the ingredients. To make a light and fluffy muffin you must mix together the dry ingredients like the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, or dried fruit mixture etc..etc... together first using a wire whisk. In another seperate bowl combine the eggs and milk. Then add in the dry ingredients to the eggs and milk mixture in small portions while stirring using a spatula or electric whisk on the slowest speed until just moistened. Over stirring is a no no as it will harden the mixture. I stir in my melted butter last using the folding method as I consider it too heavy for the wet mixture. Spoon into prepared muffin cups and bake in preheated oven at 200 degrees celcius for 20 minutes.

Here is how my blueberry muffins turns out using ready mix ingredients. All I have to add is eggs, milk and melted butter to the dry ingredients. The ones sis Karen bought for me from Batu Lanchang market taste good and its not too sweet. Will be testing out more flavors. You can also check out Erina's Cooking Island for your baking needs. All ready mix comes with all the dry ingredients of different flavors with us having to add in only eggs, milk and butter ourselves. The amount will be printed on the packaging.

Its a joy to see and smell my muffins rising up in the oven.............

Thanks for the tip on making a good muffin. Mine are sometimes a hit and miss.

Isn't it a coincidence that we both experienced the same taxi problem in Vivocity... I agree with you that it could be just the mall as I too did not have any issues at other places after that.

Hi Sis, I am baking banana muffins for you now. Don't worry..will help you have more muffins for Christmas and Adelyn's birthday too.

Sweet Jasmine said...

Hi Allie, as the wax cups are very compact you can stop it from overflowing by just filling the mixture 3/4 full or less.
