How to Troubleshoot Muffins
Assess muffins that rose too high.If the muffins had peaks like Everest with too much color, this is known as "peaked". It usually means that the muffins have been baked in an oven that is too hot, or the muffin mixture was over-mixed.
Assess muffins that overflowed.This usually means that the muffin cavities in the pan were overfilled. Don't fill the holes more than two-thirds full.
Assess undercooked muffins.An undercooked muffin will have a center that is too moist and it doesn't peak enough. Usually this is caused by the oven not being hot enough or the cooking time was too short.
Assess muffins that didn't rise much.Poorly risen muffins with a heavy, dense texture usually means that the raising agent was insufficient or ineffective (stale) or that the muffins were missing an ingredient or two. If you've made substitutions to the muffin, this may also be another reason for poor rising.
Assess burned muffins.Usually this means that either the oven temperature was too high or you left them in for too long. Use a timer if you're forgetful.
Know what a good muffin looks like.When a muffin has baked properly, it will have an even texture and will have risen evenly in the centre. Overall the colour will appear golden. When looked at in the pan, the muffins will be starting to come away from the sides of the pan holes of their own accord.

QuestionI have a new oven. My muffins aren't rising like in my old oven. Is it a problem with the temperature?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIf your muffins aren't baked through, the problem could be that the oven temperature could have been to low, the batter could have been overmixed, and/or the wrong amount of leavener was used.Thanks!
QuestionHow can I stop the peaches in my peach muffins from being discolored the next day?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerI recommend either covering your muffins with plastic wrap while they're in the refrigerator or storing them in the freezer.Thanks!
Half my blueberry muffins rised and the other half did not I can't figure it out. My banana muffins were cooked in a different pan and no problem with them. Any answers to what is wrong?
