Sometimes I sit down for breakfast and wonder how this meal could get any better than it already is, then it hits me, egg muffins! If you want to include a new and delicious addition to your breakfast table, consider putting muffins on your plate. I like to make my muffins in the oven. The muffins cook temp and cook time are key for a good result. The oven temperature that I like to use is 350 degrees Fahrenheit. One question I get a lot is this. How long to bake muffins at 350? In this post, I like to talk about this and some tips to perfect the recipe for homemade oven egg muffins.
It takes 25 minutes to bake muffins at 350 degrees Fahrenheit in the oven. With this combination of oven temp and cook time, you expect to get a fluffy and buttery result that is golden brown on the top with soft edges. You don’t want a dense muffin that feels too thick too eat. You also don’t want a muffin that is so dry you choke on it. The perfect muffin is moist, soft, and filled with delicious flavors.
People often underestimate just how important breakfast is to get your day started on the right note. So cook some appetizing muffins at 350 for about 25 minutes to make a dish that people are willing to get up early for.
Muffins aren’t particularly picky about what temperature they’re baked at, so you can raise or lower the oven temperature in either direction. Be aware that increasing the temperature to about 375 degrees will leave you with a drier muffin. This doesn’t mean it will be bone dry, it just won’t be as moist as it would if you baked at 350 degrees. But it does take a shorter time of 20 minutes to cook the muffins at 375 degrees in the oven. A drier muffin might actually be someone’s preference, so choose this option if that works best for you.
On the contrary, cooking at a lower temperature of around 325 will make the wait time longer. On the bright side, cooking lower will allow all the ingredients to melt evenly. So, if you want to experiment with other temperatures, going lower is the best option to still get a fluffy, moist muffin. The only downside is that you will have to wait longer to eat.
The best temperature to cook muffins at is 350 degrees for a few reasons. Baking at 350 is the happy medium in between a decent cook time and a high quality muffin. It’s easy to want to rush the cooking process when you’re hungry and the only thing you want to do is eat. But you should take your time so you can really get the best results. Baking at 350 won’t burn your muffins, and you won’t have to wait too long to dig in. Just try to plan the rest of your meal around when the muffins will be ready in order to eat everything while it’s still hot.
Hearing all the wonderful things about muffins probably makes you want one. You can easily find many recipes on egg muffins oven baked. But I just like to stick to this one easy muffin recipe. So here’s how to make egg muffins at home that everyone will enjoy.
Go to the store and buy flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, eggs, sugar, unsalted butter, milk, a cupcake tray, cupcake liners, and vanilla extract.
Start by mixing 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of baking powder into a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix 2/3 cup of sugar, 1 large egg, 2 tablespoons of milk, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Next, pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix them all together.
Place the cupcake liners into the tray. Fill the liners about 3/4 of the way to the top. Don’t fill it too much or else it might flow over the sides.
Set the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the tray into the oven and bake for 25 minutes. Once the time is up, take the tray out and insert a toothpick in the middle of the muffins to make sure they’re done. If the toothpick comes back clean, congrats! Your muffins are cooked! Enjoy!
Many people find it difficult to get up at a decent time, let alone prepare food for themselves. With this in mind, it’s best to have breakfast options that are easy to prepare. Thankfully, muffins do well reheating from a frozen state. Before you start freezing muffins, make sure you have all the ingredients you need on hand. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to make something new and became discouraged because I didn’t have what I needed. Save yourself a trip to the store by having all your ingredients stocked up in your house. Once you have some time, make a few batches of muffins and freeze them for easy access in the morning. You don’t even have to wait for mornings. Although muffins are typically breakfast food, they are delicious at any time of the day.
There are plenty of ways to make muffins better if you are looking for a change of flavor. Try adding some bananas, blueberries, or chocolate chips to make a tastier muffin. You don’t have to stop at just one ingredient, you can add chocolate chips and walnuts or blueberries and chia seeds, it’s up to you! Try sprinkling a little powdered sugar over the top for a sweeter taste and a fancier look. Adding other dishes will also elevate your muffins to a new level, including some scrambled eggs and baked bacon that will help to make the meal more fulfilling. Overall, there are so many different ways to make a muffin, so get creative and find which one works best for you.
