CARBS! are the REAL big problem in our house. There are many recipes for using fruit. But My husband is diabetic, so Carbs are a big factor in cooking. By the way, thanks for the new program cook'n low carbs
General MIlls used to make a "Sweet Bisquick" that made THE best mufins. Sure wish they'd bring that back!
When I use cupcke papers, too much muffin sticks to the paper!
They are also too sticky.
We are not big muffin eaters and they do not keep well even if frozen. For us, less are better.
If only they *did* turn out too crumbly, that would be far better than the little round bricks I've made recently!
Having trouble getting muffins out of your pan? Spray them with a product called Bakers Joy. It is an oil spray with flour mixed in. No more sticking!!!
Neat sweet to eat!
my biggest muffin problem is that they are so delicious that I eat way too many, and they certainly are not low carb. Oh, well--we gotta enjoy the good stuff sometimes! No Worry!
I just submitted th hint about spraying the paper muffin and cupcake liners with non-stick vegetable spray. Just another quick comment. When you have sprayed the liners before filling them with your batter, the liners peel off very easily and your muffin or cupcake is still intact! But if you are baking muffins withourt paper liners, use real shortening(Crisco)
So many recipes, so little time ...
Here's a great tip! The paperliners for cupcakes and muffins are a great item that insures that your muffins do not stick in the pan! However , sometimes when you atempt to peel the paper liner from some muffins,(esp. warm ones) the muffin sticks to the paper liner. I have the solution--after placing the liners in place in your muffin tins,just give them a quick spay with non-stick vegetable spray (PAM)
really need low fat recepies
Frost muffins like zucchini or carrot with cream cheese frosting and they make a great dessert!
mine never come up super high
I would like to be able to make the best bran muffin ever..love this site.
that was on my husband's behalf!
Spray or grease just never works for me so I tried paper liners and they're a pain also. Nothing works perfectaly does it???
Fruit always goes to bottom
I'm having trouble sometimes with parts of the inside are not cooked entirely?
Muffins are a great thing to serve for a brunch and after school snacks. The kids never can get enough!
They are so sinfully good that simply vanish!
they won't hold together when taken out of pan and half stays on the papers when removing cups
Who can resist a muffin? Too sweet for you, then have 'em for desert! Not sweet enough? Use jam, or spread with unsalted sweet butter! Yummmm
never enough, especially when they contain butterscotch chips!
