Frequently asked questions

What temperature is best for baking muffins?

The standard temperature for baking muffins is at 350 F. Some may use higher temperates in hopes of a shorter baking time. It is best not to rush the baking process so you don’t end up with burned muffins on the outside while they are still uncooked.

How long do you leave muffins in the oven?

Standard sized Muffins will need about 20 minutes in the oven. Larger and jumbo sized muffins will take anywhere between 30-40 minutes. The best rule to follow for checking doneness, is sticking a toothpick in the middle of the muffin until it comes out clean.

How to store muffins?

Muffins can be left covered on your kitchen counter for 2-3 days. It is better to store them in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 5-7 days. Muffins can be frozen for up to 3 months. Allow them to thaw in the fridge the night before and then reheat in microwave if necessary.
