I have this "thing" with blueberry muffins. I am always on the look out for the perfect recipe that will yield me muffins with high domes.
To be honest, I have baked a lot of blueberry muffin failures. I would say almost all of them tasted just fine. They just lacked the "dome" or the "height" I so desperately craved. This is one of the main reasons I hardly ever post muffins here.
I don't know, I just think the dome (or muffin top) makes the muffin taste better. Sounds crazy huh? This quirk (okay, obsession) of mine sometimes takes over my baking.
For example, I refuse to hand out a misshapen cookie, a lopsided cupcake, or a brownie that is not 2x2. Yes, I bust out the ruler for all bar cookies ...but I digress.
I have finally figured out a way to have "tall" gorgeous muffins without having to pray and beg the baking gods for a "dome". What is my secret?
Sky-high muffin wrappers from Europe! I love these wrappers! I am so glad that my friend K. keeps me knee-deep in these beautiful liners. Whenever I feel like muffin I just bake them in one of the wrappers she has sent.
I think the muffin cases help my baking eccentricities (neurosis) relax a bit. On the bright side, if you receive cookies or brownies from me you'll be able to take comfort in the fact that each one is identical. I promise.
