Ina Garten's Best Tips For Texturally Perfect Blueberry Muffins
Chef Ina Garten has recently shared a video of possibly the most Instagram-worthy blueberry muffins along with some tips to help recreate her results at home.
While most muffins are topped with large crystal sugar, Garten fills a lined muffin pan with batter and sprinkles each portion with white sugar for a more delicate crunchy texture.
Since oven temperatures can vary from what the dial is set to, she suggests using an oven thermometer and adjusting the temperature accordingly to avoid dry or undercooked muffins.
Garten says an ice cream scoop ensures even portions, helping the muffins cook uniformly, and greasing the pan’s top keeps the bottom side of the muffin-tops from sticking to it.
