I'll admit it, I love muffins!
There are so many amazing muffin recipes out there. Banana muffins, blueberry muffins, bran muffins...
I love how you can make a batch, then have them all week for breakfast, a snack, or in lunchboxes.
They're also freezer-friendly, so I tend to split a batch and freeze half. That way the family doesn't get bored of the same flavor all week.
I make two batches of different flavors, freeze half of each and then the family can enjoy them another time.
At the moment we have kale muffins in a container on the counter, plus I have some rhubarb muffins and ginger muffins in the freezer. We're totally a muffin family! Are you?
What are muffins?
Muffins are baking powder-leavened (non-yeasted) quick breads that are baked in individual-sized portions.
They are usually sweeter than bread and scones but less sweet than cupcakes.
Muffins aren't frosted and have a slightly denser texture than cupcakes. They can be sweet or savory.

What is the secret to moist muffins?
The secret to moist muffins is not to overbeat them. The muffin method of baking involves mixing the dry ingredients in one bowl, mixing the wet ingredients in another, then combining them.
Once combined, only mix the batter until just combined. You don't want streaks of flour, but beating at this stage will cause them to be tougher and drier.
Mix by hand at this stage - definitely not with an electric mixer.
Then, when it comes to baking the muffins, don't overbake them. Most recipes will call for a baking time of 15-20 minutes. Ensure they're cooked through (check with a toothpick), but don't leave them in much longer or they could dry out.
