What Tips Can You Give Me?

April 25, 2011 4:19pm CST
As I stated in a previous post today, I made Lemon Chocolate Chip Muffins last night. But I do have a problem with them. I always make my muffins in paper cases, just because it's less mess, and I adore peeling back the paper case to find a lovely soft treat underneath it. However, because I used chocolate chips, little parts of the paper case stick the the muffin and I find it fiddly to pull those little parts off before I can eat the muffin. I don't really want to make the muffins directly in the pan without the paper cases if I can help it, because if the muffins burn, they stick anyway, and then I have to scrape the burnt bits off the pan. What tips can you give me to help prevent the paper cases from sticking to the muffins so they peel off easily?

I use frozen chocolate chips. They do not melt as much there fore do not stick as much either.

Hi misplacedbrit! The only thing I can think of is to use the teflon/ non-stick type muffin pans and spray them with some vegetable spray so the muffins won't burn and will slip right out! I don't like using the non-stick pans for cooking, but for something like making muffins and cupcakes where you don't need to use the paper it works out nicely. I have a non-stick loaf pan that someone had given me and I spray a little vegetable spray or you can use oil and a dash of flour and my cakes come out of it easily!
