Tips To Remember When Baking

  • Sifting the flour 2-3 times helps in combing the mixture well and avoids lumps.
  • Microwave timing can differ depending on the models.
  • To check whether the muffins are done or not, insert a toothpick at the centre. If it comes out clean then muffins are ready.
  • For Oats Powder: Dry roast 1½ cup oats on a non-stick pan for 2-3 minutes on low flame and leave it to cool. Once cooled completely grind to make a fine powder. Store it in a clean and dry airtight container till use.
