These Mexican Vanilla Muffins are soft, delicious, and easy to make. If you are looking for a simple muffin recipe, these Vanilla Muffins are the perfect addition to your breakfast table.
Yes, this is another Mexican dish if you are wondering, but these Mexican Vanilla Muffins are wonderful. I came across these in a cookbook that I have and to be honest, I was quite skeptical in the beginning. The reason that I was skeptical is that I am not a huge fan of very vanilla-type stuff, specifically the scent. It’s too rich for me if that makes any sense.
Anyway, these muffins are very easy to make and very tasty. Because they are made with cake flour they taste like huge cupcakes without the icing, which is perfect for me. The syrup gives this nice texture and added flavor to the muffins that make them almost addicting. Instead of making blueberry muffins or banana muffins, try these muffins instead. I promise you will love them.
Tips for Making Mexican Vanilla Muffins
- Don’t overmix – Just mix your muffin batter until the wet and dry ingredients are combined. No need for a mixer as muffin batters should only be mixed lightly.
- Fill muffin cups until 3/4s full – Leave enough room for the muffin to rise without making a mess.
- Make sure your leavening agents are fresh – Muffins are reliant on leavening agents such as baking powder and baking soda so make sure that they are not expired.
- Use an ice cream scoop – Using an ice cream scoop when portioning your batter on the muffin pan can help you have equal measurements. Your muffins will bake more evenly and will have the same size.
