    Butter should be at room temperature before starting recipe. When beating butter and sugar, the mixture should be creamy and fluffy...this takes time. Add the flour and baking powder all at once and stir just to incorporate. Do not over mix. You can even have some undissolved flour peaking out from the batter. Over mixing causes tough muffins. Bake until just done. Over baking can cause texture problems as well.
