Muffin portion control

I watched four episodes of Cook Yourself Thin last night.

There are all kinds of great tips and ideas and recipes to try out. But the one that has been mentioned twice and really stuck with me is when making muffins.

Use an ice cream scooper. This controls the portions and also keep the muffins even. Pretty genuis, eh?

  1. A friend of mine by “diet soda cupcakes” — replace the eggs/oil/etc with diet soda. Haven’t tasted it, but I wonder if it works for muffins, too.

  2. correction: the friend “swears by” the diet soda cupcakes.

  3. Oh yea, I have tried that with cupcake mix. It’s not bad. Gail says make them and then freeze them. Apparently that makes them even better. Mine were really moist–so keeping them in the freezer keeps them from going bad and probably keeps them firm.
