You’ll start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees, and line a muffin pan with muffin papers. This recipe will make 10 standard sized muffins.

You will want to sift your flour so that they are no lumps. If you don’t have a sifter, a fine metal sieve works just fine.

Simply place your sieve over the mixing bowl, and put your dry ingredients in it, then stir with a spoon. Honestly, even though I have an actual sifter, I find this to be my go-to method. It’s quick and the sieve is easier to clean.

Once the batter is ready, you will scoop it into the muffin pan. I always use a muffin scoop, since it is the easiest way to get the batter evenly distributed.

The cups should be about 2/3 full.

Your muffins will bake for 18-20 minutes or until they spring back when you gently press in the center. Immediately transfer the muffins to a cooling rack to cool completely.

How to Store Muffins

Place a layer of paper towel in the bottom of a container. Arrange the muffins in a single layer on the paper towel. Then place a second paper towel over the tops of the muffins. Close your container tightly.

The paper towels inside the container will absorb some of the excess moisture in the muffins, as they tend to want to get very soft when being stored.

Freezing Muffins

To freeze your muffins, first you must allow them to cool completely.

The muffins will freeze best in an air-tight container that has as little air in it as possible. Freezer bags work great for this purpose.

Place them in the container or bag and seal it closed. Set your container on a flat surface in your freezer. The frozen muffins will be good for up to 3 months.
