Tips from the Chef

  • For a richer taste you can substitute milk with sour cream
  • Before baking you can sprinkle the muffins with a crumb topping mixture, made by mixing together: 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 tsp of cinnamon for 8 muffins
  • To check if muffins are ready, insert a toothpick into the center: if it comes out clean, they are ready!
