Hi Yochana,
Recently I'm into muffins but just can't get it right. Texture always turn out to be gummy and sticks to teeth. Really frustrating as I don't know what went wrong. What's the texture of your maltesers muffins? What is maltesers?

Don't overmix your batter when you make muffins. Just lightly stir will do even if it's lumpy it's o.k. When it bakes, it will combine on it's own.

You can see a pkt of maltesers at my muffin's background.

Hi Yochana,
Thanks for the advice. I'll try it again. If it doesn't wonder if I can pass the recipe to you to give it a try? I want to know if something is wrong with the recipe or it's me.

Hi Aunty yochana

are we supposed to pour the batter 3/4 for muffins??

Hi anonymous,

it all depends. If you like a higher dome, scoop more than 3/4 and if you want to the rim only, then pour 3/4.

hello there,

when do you put in the vanilla essence? i realised it isnt used in the directions given.

tks, lee

Hi lee,

you can add in the vanilla essence when you are creaming the butter with sugar.

hi Aunty Yochana

thanks for sharing your recipes! i'll soon be getting an oven and am excited to bake!

however, may i ask what you mean by "cream the butter with sugar" - does it mean to mix it together?
