Frequently asked Questions

What happens if you add an extra egg to muffins?

adding an extra egg to your muffins won’t really hurt. They will simply make your muffins firmer and prevent them from becoming crumbly and fall apart. The additional egg will retain an extra liquid and sugar and thus resulting in a more moist and tasty muffin.

What temperature is best to bake muffins?

We have found that the safest temperature for any kind of baking is at 350 F. This will definitely get the job done without worrying that the muffins or whatever you are baking won’t burn before it is cooked through. Also, just make sure the oven is preheated before adding the muffins to the oven.

How long do you leave muffins in the oven?

Muffins, depending on the size will need between 15-22 minutes to bake through. The rule of thumb is to use a toothpick. Place a toothpick in the middle of the muffin to check for doneness. If the toothpick comes out clean it is cooked through and ready.
