Recipe Notes

Tip:¬† To make great muffins, always blend sugar with the oil (ex. lard, butter, coconut oil etc.) then add eggs and beat until very light and fluffy (approx. 5 mins.). This will help dissolve the sugar and make the muffin more cake like. Don’t over mix. Muffin batter should be lumpy and not fluid-like. Too much mixing and the leavening agent doesn’t work as well.
