How to get the most tall and fluffy muffins? Here are a some tips to get that gorgeous fluffy and tall muffin top. – When you make the batter, let it rest. That’s the perfect time to make the streusel topping. The longer it rests, the more time the flour can absorb the wet ingredients, which results in a thicker batter (so a good 10-15 minutes would do the trick!). – A really important muffin baking tip: Only fill your muffin liners up ¾ of the way full. If you overfill, they will flow over and it will be a big mess. – Baking at a higher temperature helps the muffins to rise up. For these streusel top muffins I like to start them out in a preheated 425°F oven for 5 minutes. I then lower the heat to 350°F for the rest of the baking time. That beginning high heat is what helps it rise nice and tall. Since it has the streusel topping, it’s best to lower it for the rest of the baking time.
