Hi everyone! I have recently begun supplying a local cafe with my homemade muffins!!!!! At the first delivery, I welcomed all feedback-positive and negative alike. When I stopped in yesterday his reply was that everyone loves the texture and tastes of my product, but the general response was that they are not big enough! How do I change this without altering my recipes too much and not spoil what the customers already love and are buying??????
Thanks for your help

Muffins will usually adapt easily to different sizes. I use tulip cups for all of my muffins and cupcakes. Not only are they bigger without being jumbo, but they look so much prettier.

Hi all!!!! I am basically looking for some tips on achieving a nice big muffin top! I can bake muffins no problem, but customer wants them bigger, so I tried a larger muffin pan size, and increased the baking powder and I simply got a really big muffin, with no dome at all??????? Please, someone send me something that could help!!!!
TFL, Issy

Mine dome, but they are all different recipes. You may need new recipes where all components work together.

Thank you for the advice on new recipes-although I REALLY LOVE the ones I had hoped to use they don't seem to be doing the rising performance so well and I will start my hunt ASAP!!!!!
Much Appreciated!

If they are great recipes, before you dump them, try the tulip cups. I use a high quality greaseproof tulip cup and my whole muffin is like a muffin top. The quality of the muffin is greatly increased with these liners. I also only use WS Goldtouch pans and this is a big quality increase itself. Between the two, my outsides are just as moist and tender as the insides.
