When you freeze something like these, whats the best way to store (ziplock, tupperware etc) and reheat without them getting dry?

Jennifer – I freeze in ziploc bags and reheat in those bags (or a smaller one if I’m doing less). Reheating in a microwave safe bag actually creates moisture within the bag so it keeps the muffins from drying out. Hope that helps!

Why does it say “the rest of the evaporated milk”? Did I miss another place you add some? It’s inly a 1/2 cup right?

I’m trying to use whole wheat more right now than white flour – would these turn out if I went ww instead or should I do a half and half flour mixture?
