I don't include the time it takes to soften the butter, I take it out an hour before I'm ready to start.
Tips for making these Butter Rum Muffins:
  • Use a stand mixer, it really makes life easier
  • Soften your butter in the stand mixer.  I always unwrap the butter right out of the fridge and put it in the mixer.  I take a butter knife and cut it into chunks to help it soften faster
  • Always start with the wet ingredients when making baked goods, then either stir in the dry ingredients or continue using your mixer
  • I like using a mixture of flours.  My go-to's are sprouted spelt flour and a combination of almond meal and almond flour
  • You can either use a gold rum or white rum, but I prefer the gold rum as it has more flavor than the other
  • I prefer bigger muffins and only fill 9 tins with batter, but feel free to fill all 12
