Crunchy topping for muffins?
Do you know how to get the crunchy topping on a muffin to look nice? When I go to coffee houses, the topping on their muffins always look perfect, covers every inch of the muffin and is uniform in thickness.
When I make muffins at home and put a crunchy top on it, as it bakes and expands, the muffins don't look as nice. After I pour the batter into the paper muffin cups, I put the topping on and try to press it to the batter hoping it will stick better. Any thoughts? I usually use a variety of stuff in the topping: butter, flour, brown sugar, rolled oats.
I took a picture of the muffins I made last night and will try to post it when I get home so you can see how mine turned out.
