How long do they keep?

Once the muffins have cooled, place them in an airtight container. They will keep for around 2 days at room temperature and up to 5 days when refrigerated.

You can eat the muffins as they are, but I like to pop them in the oven for a few minutes to warm them up.

Can you freeze them?

Yes, muffins freeze well and will keep for up to 3 months when stored this way. You can either flash freeze them on a baking sheet before transferring to a freezer bag, or you can wrap them individually in plastic wrap and place in a freezer safe container.

Frozen muffins can be thawed at room temperature or in the oven or microwave.

Why are my muffins dry?

Dry muffins often happen when you over mix the batter. The ingredients should be just incorporated, not over mixed. Take care not to over bake them either, they are ready to come out when an inserted knife or toothpick comes out clean.

  • Don’t fill the muffin cases all the way to the top or they will overflow during baking. Leave a little gap.
  • Take care not to over mix the batter.
  • Bake the muffins in a pre-heated oven so that they cook evenly through.
  • Let the muffins cool slightly before enjoying.
