Toothpick Test Muffins

So, you’ve got a batch of muffins in the oven and that delicious smell is playing games with your taste bud’s hearts. But, how do you tell if your muffins are actually done?

This post from Quaker Oats says, simply insert a toothpick or wooden pick into the center of one of the muffins while they’re still in the oven. If the toothpick comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs , the muffins are done.

Pay attention, that sometimes muffins on the outside of the pan bake faster than the center muffins.

Before storing muffins any of these 3 ways, you always need to let your muffins completely cool.  Placing warm or hot muffins in a Ziploc or airtight container can cause the muffins to produce condensation and become soggy.

  • Room Temperature – You can store muffins at room temperature up to 4 days in a Ziploc Bag or airtight container. Line the bottom of the airtight container or Ziploc Bag with a paper towel before placing the muffins inside in a single layer. Cover the tops of the muffins with another paper towel to help absorb excess moisture.
  • Freezer – You can freeze muffins up to 3 months.  Place them in a single layer in a Ziploc Bag or airtight container.  To reheat your muffins, thaw them at room temperature or use a thaw setting on your microwave.
  • Refrigerator – Avoid refrigerating muffins unless they are a savory variety that includes meats or cheeses in the recipe.  The refrigerator can cause your sweet muffins to dry out.
