Stay CLEAN Muffin Pan!!



I absolutely hate doing dishes, and no, I do not want a dishwasher - never did and probably never will.

Thing is with muffin pans, you have to get into every hole, and mostly it needs more scrubbing than just a gentle wipe... no matter how well you have prepared the pan before use.  And the tops ! Well, there is always one or more muffin or cupcake which rises over the edge - some of those marks you never get off.

I do, however, use a muffin pan without liners on occasion - then the aluminium foil won't do.  But mostly I use liners and then this little trick works wonders.  

Do as follows: {no rocket science...}


1.) Cover the muffin pan with aluminium foil - tuck it in at the edges.
2.) Cut a small X incision in the center of each hole.
3.) Open up slightly in order for the liner to be pushed in easily.
4.) Press a liner into each opened up hole.

Bake your muffins or cupcakes - remove from pan - remove and discard the aluminium foil. Pack away your muffin pan for next time's use.

No cleaning !  It works !

Lazy housewife tip..?? Oh, yes, definitely ;-)   Do not forget your pans will look better for longer as well....


Do you already use this tip?  Let me know.....

Bye-bye now
