    Hi Julie, if your blender does not have a "Batters" cycle, blend on Medium Low (speed 3 or 4) for 30 seconds.

  • Blendtec

    Yes, but the texture of the muffins will be different.

    Can I substitute Sucanat with Splenda as I am in the UK

  • Blendtec

    Hi Janet, if you don’t allow the batter to sit, it will be more runny and will take a little longer to set up. The result may not be as moist as it would if the batter was allowed to sit for the recommended time.

  • Janet

    What happens if I don’t allow batter to sit for 5 minutes?
