Can you freeze muffins? Do I freeze the mixture before cooking or once cooked? How long do I need to defrost them (hopefully microwave) to heat them up?

Thinking of cooking my DD some sugar free muffins - so she might eat something other than toast for breakfast.

I imagine you freeze them once made and defrost like you would anything else by taking them out the freezer and leaving them out until they are defrosted.

Make them. Let them cool. Then freeze them. Get them out maybe the night before if you want them for breakfast. My mum does this with scones and muffins and they are lur-ver-ly

sugar-free? what are you planning on replacing the sugar with?

You can defrost in the microwave, just make sure the power is on nice and low.

I would guess honey, wig, but i'd just bung a bit of sugar in tbh

but honey doesn't make it sugar-free .. its just a different form

am confused, and interested

I yam, after all, da muffin man

Hopefully it's not that grim Splenda/sweetner stuff


(unless DD is diabetic or somthing)

Microwave on full for about 30 seconds. They come out lovely and warm.

No honey or sugar - sweetened with crushed pineapple and raisins. Quite a few recipes for sugar free muffins, my MIL does one with bran (not suitable for DD yet) which are absolutely lovely.
