Muffins too Dry

BTW, going from muffins to fish (LOL) take a peak at my Moroccan Cheroula Fish recipe if you want something more tasty than broiled or baked fist with the standard squeeze of lemon and pinch of dill. http://www.chow.com/recipes/29429-fis...

Muffins too Dry

This was my 1st post on the board and you cooks are the best! Mufins were a grand sucess last night. Thanks to all of you, here's what I did:

Did go with a 50:50 mix on the flour, added 1/4 cup OJ, a 1/3 cup more oil. This was perfect. I was also out of goat cheese and figs so I made them with cream cheese and dried apricots. They are now a moist healthly muffin with a treat of a cream cheese and honey (agave for me) soft center.

They are so good, I'm posting the recipe today. Thank you again.

Muffins too Dry

Yes, I like moist muffins and these are too dry. I love pumpkin. Looks like I have 3 batchs to experiment with now. Glad they're low fat!

Muffins too Dry

Thanks for the link. I bake bread daily and am a big KA fan too. The recipe called for 2 cups white. I modified to 1 1/4 whole wheat and 3/4 white. I agree with the OJ, would blend beautifully with the figs. I think I'll do two batches and add OJ to one and a couple Tbsp yogurt; for the fat, to the other. I may have just added to much dry ingredients with the wheat germ and flax.

Muffins too Dry

Good idea. Here's the ingredients (as I modified):

Honey & Goat Cheese Filled Fig Muffins:
3/4 C soft goat cheese
2 T agave (honey substitute)
1 t lemon zest
1 t vanilla
1 1/4 C Whole Wheat, 3/4 C White Flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
2 T wheat germ
2 T milled flax
2 whole eggs plus 1 egg white
3/4 C brown sugar
1 C buttermilk
1/3 C olive oil
1 1/4 C dried figs
3 T agave

What I modified is adding the wheat instead of all white flour, added the wheat germ and flax, changed from honey to agave.

I was thinking of adding more buttermilk or maybe some plain yogurt? What do you think?

Muffins too Dry

I'm working with a 50/50 wheat to white flour ratio and my muffins are very tasty but too dry. Any recommendations to moisten them without changing flour ratio? (original recipe called for much less wheat.
