Gently mix just enough to combine. Do not over mix otherwise muffins won’t rise properly. Distribute batter evenly between 6 openings of the muffin tin.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let muffins cool for a few minutes and transfer to a cooling rack to cool off completely. Do not leave muffins in a tin as they will over bake and become dry.
