    Don't know but one thing that can have a bad affect on the texture of bread like foods is to be microwaved.

    It could be, or it could be underbaking it (you want moist crumbs), or overfilling your cups. Are you doing spoon and sweep method for the flour? Or--are you using the wrong kind (there's bread, AP, and pasty with decreasing # of gluten)? Maybe try pastry flour, or even lightening the AP by removing/replacing 2 tbsp with cornstarch per 1 cup flour.

    were the ingredients fresh. Baking powder if it is old will not allow your batter to rise as much causing a denser product.

    Adding more flour than called for can definitely cause a rubbery dense muffin.

    Over mixing

    Over baking

    Incorrect oven temperature

    Not allowing air circulation in the oven so over loading the racks could inhibit the rise

    Baking is tricky because it’s more like science with chemical reactions that are balanced.

    Hm...Rubbery...my first inclination WOULD be overmixing or overbaking...you could try getting one of those inexpensive inside the oven thermometers to check your actual oven temp, most ovens are not exactly calibrated.

    To measure flour be sure you are scooping it and then dumping your scoop into your measuring cup so you aren’t packing the flour.

    You could also check to be sure you are using the right size of egg.

    Just stick a tooth pick in, if it comes out like too moist and doughy it’s not ready
