There’s no question that the standard oven temperature of 350°F gets the job done for baking up muffins and quick breads.

How do I get my muffins to rise higher?
If you put the batter into a warm oven, the muffins may not rise as beautifully. Stir all your dry ingredients together very well with a whisk.

How do you prepare blueberries for muffins?

Can I put frozen blueberries in muffins?
Can you make Blueberry Muffins With Frozen Blueberries? Yes you can! While you can use fresh blueberries in this recipe, frozen blueberries also work well. Toss frozen blueberries in some flour to coat and prevent sticking and sinking to the bottom of the muffins.
This is a very simple fix – don’t let your muffins rest in the tins for longer than 5 minutes. When they’re cool enough to handle, remove from the pan and transfer to a cooling rack. The steam will escape freely, and your bottoms will be firm and moist without any sogginess.
How do you know when muffins are ready?
The best test to determine a muffin’s doneness is to insert a wooden pick into the center of one of the center muffins before removing the pan from the oven. If it comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs clinging to the pick, the muffins are done. Sometimes outer muffins bake faster than center muffins.
What two textures can muffins have?
