EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

After filling the cups, be sure to wipe up any batter that spills onto the edge of the pan so it won't stick and burn. Bake muffins for the shortest time stated in the recipe, then check for doneness. If the muffin tops aren't golden brown or they don't spring back when touched lightly in the center, bake a minute or two longer, then check again.

Sprinkle tops of muffins with 1/4 cup white coarse sugar crystals before baking.
