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

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

  • 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.

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

  • They are really good with a pink-ish apple (like Fuji or Gala) or green apples. Red apples get mushy when baking.

  • How do I replace the sucanat with applesauce or brown sugar?

    Meryll on

  • I don’t have Sucanat but I have Truvia brown sugar and baking – can I use that as a replacement ? And would it be an even replacement?

    Caitlin on

  • Can i just use milk instead of buttermilk?

    Annie on

  • The ratio for sucanat and brown sugar is 1:1 so you can use the same amount of brown sugar (3/4 cup). Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • This recipe has pumpkin spice being added in step 2 and step 5. Is this an error or is truly added twice?

    Sharon Kingston on

  • We recommend buttermilk but you can make milk work as a substitute by adding lemon juice, yogurt or cream of tartar. Check out this post to see details on how to make it work: http://joythebaker.com/2013… Happy blending!

  • I just purchased the Designer 625 model yesterday and I do not see the "batter" function on my machine? Is there another setting I can use to make this recipe? Thanks!
