【像蛋糕般松软的】香蕉核桃满分 Banana Walnut Muffin

孟老师的食谱。拥有这本书有好一段日子了,说起来我尝试过的食谱五根手指都数得完,而且都是蛋糕类的。

其实我对muffin的要求不是像蛋糕一样松软,只要不太硬就行了。Muffin应该是比较实的,吃了很有饱足感,还有要有高高隆起的小屋顶。Muffin可以当是正餐的主要粮食,但蛋糕却不行。


事实证明家人还是比较爱吃像蛋糕的muffin,这个很受欢迎。我觉得我是家里的怪胎,像硬硬的欧式面包,家人也不爱,但是我却很喜欢,但在做烘培时家人的喜好通常还是摆第一的。

突然想吃巧克力,所以抓了两把巧克力豆加入,减少了核桃的份量(家里的核桃所剩无几,看来非得抽空去趟烘培店补货了)。


要提一提这个食谱的油量还不少,170g。我边倒油边看电子称显示的重量,怎么还没到170。。。本来又想“发挥”我爱乱改食谱的本色,但想想,这个食谱是第一次做,而且大师的食谱这么写一定有他的理由,所以还是跟着加了170g的油。

Muffin出炉时真的有点油,纸杯都变透明了。但是隔天就还好,怪不得书里说最佳赏味期是一天后。

下次做我应该会减少油量,吃了才不会那么有罪恶感。

  10. hello Angel,

    thank you for your sharing. the muffins looked tempting. i really love muffins
    i am a beginner in baking and i face some problems in baking muffins
    1. why my muffins do not have the dome shape, and the tops are almost flat. i used 180 C and bake for 40 min. the texture of the muffins are not fluffy too.
    p/s: i used milk that made from anlene milk powder instead of fresh milk. i also used double action baking powder instead of normal baking powder. does all these matter?
    please advise. thank you very much,

    regards,
    Diona

    1. Hi Diona,

      Using milk made from milk powder and double action baking powder do not matter.

      For the flat top, I suspect your oven is not hot enough. It is important to preheat your oven before baking. Maybe your actual oven temp is at the lower side, so you can try to use 200C next time to see if there is any difference.

      If your muffin is not fluffy, probably you have over mixed the ingredients. You just need to mix till the ingredients are moisted, a bit lumpy is ok. Rule of thumb try to minimize the mixing. Stop mixing once you see no trace of flour.

      Hope my two cents worth. Happy baking!
