Good morning, everyone! I hope you all are having a fabulous week, so far. I'm sharing a muffin recipe I made recently. I tweaked the recipe a little and it resulted in a delectable muffin. It was soft and not dry at all.
These muffins have espresso powder in them. The espresso powder is not over powering but a nice addition to the muffin. So, I would not suggest omitting it. Although, if you do want a stronger espresso flavor then add more espresso powder.
To avoid a dense and tough muffin try not to overmix the batter. Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry and mix only till combined and you will end up with a fluffy, delicious muffin.
