TIPS FOR HOMEMADE MUFFINS

1. When preheating the oven, make sure you have all ingredients ready to start making the muffins.

2. Place the oven rack in the middle. This allows the hot air to circulate evenly around the muffins, resulting in even cooking.

3. Never open the oven door while muffins are baking. The kitchen temperature is always lower than the oven temperature, what will happen is that the oven temperature will drop and the risk of the muffins sinks in the middle increases.

4. The first thing to do before taking the muffins out of the oven, is to stick a toothpick in the center of the muffins. If it's dry, it's cooked. Turn off the oven and leave the muffins in the oven for another 5 minutes.

5. Do not open the oven door all the way, leave the door open about 10 to 15 centimeters (4 inches to 6 inches) and wait another 5 or 10 minutes so that the heat enters the kitchen and there is no temperature shock that causes the muffins to collapse (the time depends on the season of the year, if it is summer leave it for about 5 minutes, if it is winter 10 minutes).
