For the general public “muffin” and “cupcake” are two words for one and the same thing – a charming pastry, which you can eat on the go or offer as a convenient and elegant treat at an event.
But the truth is, that although similar in shape, they are quite different – both as ingredients and in terms of preparation.
Discover Take a Cake’s quick breads – healthy and tasty muffins, enriched with selected ingredients.
Unlike cupcakes, which are in fact little cakes and are prepared from a cake’s dough, muffins fall into the category of the so-called quick breads. And although you can prepare a sweet muffin, today we will tell you more about our savoury quick breads.
With muffins the ingredients are mixed just like in bread making, but the dough isn’t kneaded and no yeast is added.
Another difference is that the selected dry ingredients should be mixed only until they are just moistened. The aim is not to achieve a smooth uniform batter, just the opposite. Cakes, on the other hand, are high in both fat and sugar and the uniform mixing of the ingredients is key for the fine structure of the end product.
With muffins overmixing results in an unpleasant toughness after baking. A detailed recipe for one of our flavours is coming soon.
The number one rule at Take a Cake is baking right after mixing. That’s how we are able to offer you a soft, light and super delicious savoury muffin, equally suitable for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
And what about the flavours that we picked? Unexpected and balanced, classic and healthy. We present to you our muffins, with which you can diversify your daily menu or you can surprise guests and friends with a delicious and elegant treat in the form of a muffin collection by Take a Cake.
