  • How to add cream cheese to muffins?

    Cream cheese is soft, sweet, and slightly tangy, which is why it works so well in muffins. You can turn all muffin recipes into cream cheese muffins if you want more texture and flavour. After putting the batter in your muffin tins, you simply add a small scoop of your favourite cream cheese and bake according to the recipe. You can also substitute some of the butter in your recipe with cream cheese to make it mushier.

  • What size is a mini muffin?

    Muffins come in all shapes and sizes, and a mini muffin is the smallest one. A regular mini muffin is about 51 mm in diameter with room for about 50 ml of muffin batter.
