Is it better to use oil or butter in muffins?
It’s a good question that every housewife has probably stumbled upon. It all depends on what is your purpose. Oil-based muffins tend to grow more than butter-basted ones. Also, cakes made with oil are moister and fluffier and stay tender for longer than cakes made with butter. Butter has its purpose in the bakery. Muffins and cakes made with butter taste better than oil-based ones.
How can I make my muffins moister?
Actually, the answer is below – just use vegetable oil. If the recipe calls for butter and you want your cake moist, substitute a quarter of the butter with vegetable oil. Make sure you do not overmix the batter and bake no longer than 20 minutes.
How do you make Banana Muffins?
Crispy on the outside, moist and fluffy on the inside, these banana bread muffins are my weakness. Those who love banana bread will find these muffins even more interesting as everyone can enjoy their own portion. One of the advantages these muffins have is that they are made of the ingredients you probably have in your pantry.
The banana muffins batter takes less than 10 minutes to put together. Easy, quick, and simple. Start by mashing the bananas. If the bananas are overripe, you can mash them with a fork. Otherwise, if bananas are firm, then mash them with a hand blender. Now add the plain yogurt, eggs, milk, and melted butter to the blender bowl. Blend all together.
In a separate bowl, sift the flour. Stir in brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.
The last step for these banana muffins batter is to combine everything together. So, combine dry ingredients with banana mixture. Make sure you do not overmix the batter. In the end, stir in the chocolate chips.
Spoon muffins batter into prepared muffin cups. Send muffins to the preheated oven at 350 °F and bake for 30 minutes.
Can I Substitute the Chocolate Chips?
If you prefer plain banana muffins, you can skip chocolate chips. Bananas provide enough flavor and moisture to these muffins. Feel free to add chopped nuts, raisins, or other dried fruits if you crave more tastes.
Can I use Frozen Bananas?
Definitely, you can use frozen bananas. Before adding them to the batter, thaw them completly at room temperature. Take into consideration that frozen bananas tend to release more moisture. So add one more tablespoon of flour or lightly pat dry bananas with a paper towel.
Tips: If you have some overripe bananas – freeze them. Peel and then transfer bananas in a ziploc bag.
