Expert Tips

You can make the batter the night before, cover the bowl and put it in the fridge. Pop the muffins in the oven to bake just as your guests arrive. Bake at 375°F for 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.

Add a gourmet touch by making a glaze with 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 2 to 3 teaspoons milk. Use a spoon to drizzle the glaze over the muffins.
