How to make the raisin muffin “Stolichny”: tips and tricks

  • The ratio of the amounts of ingredients in the recipe makes the original taste of the Russian raisin muffins. Therefore, I recommend you to weigh all the ingredients exactly.
  • Use fine sugar for the raisin muffin recipe, as it dissolves faster when whipped. Alternatively, you can replace sugar with powdered sugar.
  • Eggs need to be room warm to combine well with softened butter. Also, the sugar will dissolve more quickly when whipped.
  • Beat the egg-butter-sugar mixture until the sugar dissolves. You can check this by rubbing a small amount of the mixture between two fingers. If you don’t feel any crystals when rubbing, the sugar has dissolved.
  • Do not stir the dough too long after adding flour, but only briefly until it has a homogeneous consistency. Otherwise, the raisin muffins might taste rubbery and dry after baking.
  • It’s best to add flour with baking powder to the other ingredients through a sieve, so that no lumps form in the batter and you don’t have to stir it too long.
  • Be sure to grease and flour the muffin cups thoroughly if you are not using a silicone baking pan, so that you can easily remove the raisin muffins from the cups after baking. Alternatively, you can line the baking cups with muffin paper baking cups.
  • Use a toothpick to check if the raisin muffins are baked. To do this, insert a toothpick briefly into the center of one of the muffins and see if it comes out almost clean. If the toothpick remains smeared in raw batter, you still need to bake the muffins. If only a few moist crumbs remain on the toothpick, the raisin muffins are done.
  • Depending on the size of the muffin baking cups, the baking time given in the recipe may vary.
  • Store the muffins with raisins in an airtight container in a cool place. Just like the cake “Stolichny” they stay fresh and delicious for a very long time. You can enjoy them up to about 2 weeks.
