How to Keep Berries from Sinking in Muffins
Banish those heavy-bottomed, soggy blueberry muffins for good with this simple trick to keep berries from sinking in muffins.
You don't have to mix blueberries into your muffin batters anymore. It's easy to break the berries and can give the muffins a greenish tint—often the berries settle down to the bottom of the muffin cup (as with the left muffin in photo below). Scoop a little batter into each muffin cups, then put a few berries on top. Repeat by scooping the remaining batter on top, placing the blueberries on top and poking them in with your finger. The berries are evenly distributed (see muffin on the right below).
