Cooking muffins in the microwave slightly changes the texture.

There are a few factors to consider when cooking muffins in the microwave –

The wattage of your microwave (there are many different microwaves out there, some more powerful than others)

The number of muffins cooked at a time – 5 to 6 works best

The size of the muffin cup – the large cups will take slightly longer to cook

How full you fill the muffin cups – half full is best


Generally, as a rule, the higher the wattage, the quicker the cooking time.  And, the more muffins you cook at a time, the longer it will take to cook them.


Approximate cooking times:

Large cups     3 minutes  – check after 2 minutes

Small cups     1 ½ minutes – check after 1 minute


The cooking times provided are only a guideline.

If the mixture looks wet, then they will need to be cooked for longer. 

Try 30 second intervals until cooked through.


Never use metal muffin cups in the microwave.  The muffin cups provided are suitable for microwave use.


Handle the muffins with care once they’re cooked as they will be very hot !

Allow to stand and cool before serving.
