Bakery Style Muffins

To achieve the higher tops that bakery-style muffins are known for, you must adjust the temperatures on the oven. It's really simple, just start with the oven at 425° and after 5 minutes reduce the temperature to 375° for another 13 minutes.

Here are a few other recipes that use this baking method:

This allows the muffins to rise quickly at first and then by reducing the time, the insides bake lower and slowly producing a moist inside and crunchy outside.

Preparing the Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

When I don't use muffin liners I make sure to spray a nonstick baking spray on my muffin tins so that they don't stick and become hard to get out of the tins. Using nonstick baking spray makes it incredibly easy to remove the muffins because it has flour in the spray mixture, it's perfect for muffins, cupcakes, and bread recipes. It is great for all baked goods, really.


Overripe Bananas

One great tip to getting moist muffins is to use overripe bananas. The bananas will mash easily and they will blend into a light and fluffy batter.
