Any bakers 'round these parts??
 
I just tried a new blueberry muffin recipe (sp?) (from scratch) and its pretty good but I want them to be a bit moister ( is that even a word? )

Any thoughts???

TIA ;)

What is in he recipe? You could try applesauce in place of the oil or underbke them just a little bit.

I have heard of and usually do the applesauce replacement - but this calls for butter (im assuming thats rather than oil???)

ingredients are as follows:

flour
sugar
baking powder
salt
eggs
milk
butter


thats it... I always tweak the flavor with different things and thats working out fine but they're just not how I like 'em -
I hacent tried the undercooking...

Replace some (but not all!) of the butter with oil. Oil adds the illusion of moistness. Be careful not to overbake (I wouldn't underbake but I would check the temp of your oven).

You might try brown sugar instead of white. it's more hygroscopic. You'll have to play with the amt, though.

Decrease your flower by a bit. Butter is suppose to make moister bread. The flower content may be too high. Start with 3Tbs at first. Go from there. If using fruit be sure to use some of their juices. Jam or preserves are an option also. That may help without reducing flower. Whole grains will always be dryer.

The WW flour will make them drier too, so just keep that in mind. And you can use applesauce to replace any kind of fat, including butter. if you don't want to replace all of the butter just replace half of it. I sometimes just add extra applesauce too.
