Bakery Style Muffins- How To


Since this how-to was "buried" in my blueberry muffin recipe I posted last September, I thought I'd mention it again for those that may have missed it.

How to make those fancy bakery-style

big-topped muffins you see at the bakery...

1. When coating your muffin pan with non-stick spray, spray some on the top of the pan also. This will keep the underside of the muffin tops from sticking.

2. Fill up the muffin cups full to the top. The batter will rise up and over just a bit, making a big round top.

3. Add four minutes to the baking time. Test with a toothpick for doneness. There you go! Fancy-pants muffins! *smile*


  1. Looks good I followed you over from basilmomma. Enjoying finding new stuff

  2. I love making muffins like that because then I can just pull the top off and give the "stump" to my son or husband to eat. I get the best part, and it saves calories!
