About Christmas Morning Muffins Recipe
A muffin is an individually portioned baked product, but the term can refer to one of two distinct items: a part-raised flatbread baked and then cooked on a griddle, or a quickbread chemically leavened and baked in a mould.
Muffins are single-serving quick breads that rise with baking soda or baking powder and eggs rather than yeast. They are typically sweet and moist, but heavier than a cake or cupcake. Muffins are baked in a muffin pan with cup indentations.
Ingredients For Christmas Morning Muffins Recipe
All Purpose Flour / Maida
All-purpose flour can be used for a variety of tasks, including baking, cooking, coating meats and vegetables, and thickening sauces and gravies. To manufacture all-purpose flour, a blend of hard wheat (which has more gluten) and soft wheat is crushed together.
Baking powder is used in baked goods to increase volume and lighten the texture. It works by releasing carbon dioxide gas into a batter or dough via an acid-base reaction, which causes bubbles in the wet mixture to expand and leaven the mixture.
It gives recipes a citrusy, tangy flavour. It's delicious in salad dressings like our Citrus Salad Dressing and baked goods like our Orange and Fennel Cake.
