Thawing frozen muffins:
Heating & quick thawing:
Toaster oven: Put your foil-wrapped muffin(s) in the toaster oven for 3-5 minutes. Or, leave off the foil for a crunchy exterior! This works best with pre-thawed muffins.
Conventional oven: For frozen muffins, wrap in foil and heat in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or until muffins are heated throughout. For pre-thawed muffins, heat for 3-5 minutes.
Microwave: Microwave thawed or frozen in 20-second intervals until heated throughout, preferably using a reduced power setting.
A note on storage:
Sticky muffin syndrome. We’ve all experienced it – you put your delicious baked goods in tupperware for safekeeping, only to find that they become mushy and unappealing the next day. Why?!
As baked goods begin to stale, the moisture inside will migrate to the surface. (The only way to prevent this is to cram the muffins with preservatives. We’ll never do this! This defeats the purpose of baking often and from scratch.) If the moisture has no place to evaporate or absorb, it will remain on the outer crust, causing stickiness and sogginess (and dissolving any coarse sugar left on top). So we DO NOT recommend using sealed tupperware for storing your fresh muffins!
