Give your muffin or pancake mix an extra kick by adding a teaspoon or two of your favorite powdered spice. Some of my go-to additions are cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, and allspice. But have some fun and figure out what works best with your mix.

Can I use milk instead of water in muffin mix?
Q. In a muffin mix that calls for water, can I substitute milk? 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 dried muffin batter?
You can add a little more if the batter seems really thick and dry. Next, try adding a little fat. You don’t need much – maybe 2-3 tablespoons of butter – but this will help make the muffins lighter. Butter helps to hold the little air bubbles that expand while the muffins are in the oven and create that airy texture.
What happens if you add an extra egg to muffins?
Because emulsifiers hold water and fat together, adding extra egg yolks to the batter enables the batter to hold extra liquid and, consequently, extra sugar.
Can you add an egg to a muffin mix?
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together Martha White Banana Nut Muffin Mix, 1 large egg, and ⅔ cup whole milk. Stir in sliced bananas. Using a ladle or a large spoon, add about ¼ cup batter onto a hot griddle or nonstick pan.
What is the secret to making moist muffins?
Why muffins come out dry and crumbly The main cause of dry, hard muffins is over-mixing the batter and overcooking the muffins. So the the 3 simple secrets for beautifully soft and moist blueberry muffins are: use butter AND oil -butter makes things tasty but oil makes things moist. So use both!
How do I make my muffins light and fluffy?
Muffins use baking powder or baking soda, or both, to generate the “rise” that makes them light and fluffy. Use too little and they won’t rise enough, use too much and they will rise quickly and then collapse.
How do you get muffins to rise high?
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. The idea is to distribute the leavening agents (baking powder or baking soda) evenly throughout the batter so that the muffins will achieve a lovely texture and a good rise.
Is it better to use oil or butter in muffins?
Butter is considered a solid fat because it is solid at room temperature and oil is considered a liquid fat because it’s liquid at room temperature. Because of this, you can’t rely on oil to provide any leavening help in baked goods, which can result in a denser texture.
What can you do if you put too much milk in muffin mix?
If you ‘ve added too much milk, you have to add more dry ingredients and probably another egg, depending on how much milk you added over the original recipe.
What oil do you use for muffins?
A recipe for moist baked goods like brownies, cake, or muffins that calls for oil is best made with light, mild-tasting varieties like canola (rapeseed), sunflower, soybean, and corn. These are usually the most affordable as well.
Why is my muffin batter dry?
The more you mix, the more the gluten develops, and if there is too much of it in the batter the muffins will inevitably be tough and most likely rubbery and dry because the batter is dense and therefore doesn’t expand as it should. When there is just enough gluten, it results in muffins that are tender and moist.
Should blueberry muffin batter be thick?
As a general rule, the thinner the batter, the lighter the muffins will be when baked. But don’t be afraid to bake thick, gloppy batter. It can yield moist muffins with extra keeping power.
What consistency should my muffin batter be?
The consistency of most muffin batters should be like a less-sticky cookie batter – such that two spoons are required to get the batter into the tin. Too much liquid in the batter will create uneven muffins.
