How do you keep muffins from getting soggy?

There are two good ways to keep muffins from getting soggy. Whichever method you use, you’ll want to make sure your muffins are completely cool before placing them in an airtight container. You don’t want any residual heat in the muffins.

first option Simply add some soda crackers to the airtight container you store your pancakes in. The biscuits will absorb excess moisture.

second option is to spread paper towels on the bottom of the storage container. Place muffins in a single layer on paper towels, then place another paper towel on top. Paper towels will absorb excess moisture.

Can I add nuts to my chocolate muffins?

Yes, you can! When you add the chocolate chips, you can also add 1/2 cup of chopped nuts. Almonds, walnuts, or pecans all work well in this recipe.

How to make the perfect dome muffin top?

The key to making the perfect domed muffin top is to blast the batter with heat when you first put it in the oven, then let it finish baking in a slightly cooler oven. This will release the steam in the muffins quickly, allowing the muffins to expand quickly and form a perfect dome. 425 degrees Fahrenheit is the ideal temperature to start making muffins. After about 7 minutes, reduce the heat in the oven to 350°F. Watch the muffins carefully as they finish baking, as ovens vary slightly, so your cooking time may vary as well. Take the muffins out once they are golden brown on top.
