Today, muffins need no introduction. All children are super crazy for them. But many years back (around 15 years) when my husband got muffin liners from abroad, I had no idea what they were…. how to use them… no clue at all. They kept lying in my store room, feeling neglected.. also Google was not there at that time for my rescue.

Earlier I used to make these with all-purpose flour but recently have switched over to Whole wheat flour.
Definitely, a very healthy version. No change in taste and the recipe, except the amount of liquid, as wheat flour takes more liquid.

- Please use standard measuring cups and spoons available for baking purposes. Don’t use cups in your kitchen as they are of varied sizes.
1 Tbsp = 15 gms 1 Tsp = 5 gms.
- Take normal sugar available in your kitchen. No need to powder it.
- Any cooking oil can be used, be it olive or refined or any other. Please avoid oils with strong pungent smells.
- The quantity of water may vary slightly depending on the absorption capacity of flour. Therefore, start by adding 3/4th cup water and increase gradually.
- You can also use apple cider vinegar.
- In the absence of muffin liners, you can also bake these in glass bowls/aluminium moulds. Lightly grease the bowls, fill the batter and bake.
- You can also use paper cups available for tea/coffee. No need to grease muffins liners. Simply pour the batter and bake.
- Salt is added to enhance the flavour of sugar, so go ahead without any doubt.
- Start preheating oven/cooker after filling the muffins liners. This resting time helps in giving a smooth texture.
- Please check the number of muffins moulds that can fit in your cooker/wok and work accordingly.
- Ensure that these are properly baked, otherwise, the top will become sticky after cooling.
- Always let them cool on wire rack otherwise the bottom gets soggy which in turn will make the top sticky.
