How do you stop blueberries from sinking in muffins?
Another and far more effective method, to prevent sunken berries is to spoon a third of the batter into the muffin trays and then fold the berries into the remaining muffin batter. Spoon this on top of the berry-less batter. Try this method and you will no longer have muffins with soggy bottoms.

How do I reuse dry muffins?
If the muffins are overbaked enough to become dry on the inside, it’s possible to rescue them by using a wet glaze or a “soaker” syrup to soften the crust and moisten the internal crumb. Make a wet glaze by dissolving sugar in lemon juice, for example, or whisking icing sugar into milk.
Why are blueberry muffins bad for you?
Reduced fat blueberry muffins are certainly no better—if not worse. With only slightly fewer calories than their regular counterparts, they still contain the same high amount of sugar (almost 40 grams, or 10 teaspoons) and nearly 50 percent more sodium (a whopping 540 milligrams per muffin!).
How do you sweeten blueberries for muffins?
Toss them in sugar, honey, or maple syrup, along with a little fresh juice or alcohol (an herbal liqueur, like elderflower spirit, would be great). You don’t need a lot to get the berries rocking; a quarter- to a half-cup of juice or booze, and about double the amount of sugar, is all you need.
Is Betty Crocker muffin mix better with milk or water?
A. We don’t recommend using milk instead of water because the milk can make holes in the paper liners or the sides of the muffins.
How do you fix sticky muffins?
You can also sprinkle some baking soda on a paper towel on the bottom of your container and then place your goods on top (just don’t do that to bare bottomed muffins so they don’t get baking soda on their bottoms, try to put them on a plate first. Lined cupcakes should be ok.) Baking soda naturally absorbs moisture.
