    Recipe Notes
    • Do not over mix the batter.
    • Fill the batter up to the rim of pudding cup liners to allow the muffins to “smile” when steamed.
    • Steam the muffins on HIGH heat. Otherwise the muffins will not rise enough for it to “smile/laugh”.
    • Freeze extra muffins in the refrigerator. When needed, remove from the freezer, thaw slightly and steam for 5-10 minutes until muffins before serving.
