How to make fluffy moist batter?

If you follow these little tips, your muffins with rhubarb will taste really fluffy and moist in the end.

Vegetable oil is the main ingredient that makes the pastry so moist. You should not reduce the amount of vegetable oil in the recipe.

You should thoroughly beat eggs with sugar. It takes about 10 minutes. The egg sugar mixture should have an airy, thick consistency and a light color. It must also have increased significantly in volume.

Vegetable oil and milk, on the other hand, are stirred into the egg sugar mixture only briefly. If you do it with a mixer, use one of the lowest speeds.

After adding flour and baking powder to the liquid mixture, stir the batter only briefly. Once all the ingredients have combined into a barely homogeneous mass, the batter is ready. It is best to sift the flour mixture into the liquid mass so that no lumps form and you do not have to stir for a long time.

In addition, you should not bake the rhubarb muffins for too long. The baking time specified in the recipe may vary.

You can use a toothpick to check if they are done. Insert the toothpick into the center of one of the muffins. If it comes out clean, the rhubarb muffins are done. If the toothpick comes out smeared in raw batter, you will need to bake the muffins for a few more minutes.
