    Default Help...need help with muffins

    Okay, so I thought I would be frugal today as we ran out of sweet snacks. I decided to make muffins. Mango muffins to be exact. But I have an issue now. The paper cups will not come off with out ripping the muffins to pieces. Is there any way to get them off? They won't be wasted as they will still be eaten, but half of them stick to the paper...

    oh, and how would you prevent this from happening in the future?

    Thanks in advance!!

    I spray my muffin papers and the top of the muffin pan with nonstick spray ~ I do it with cupcakes, too

    I either spray or paint on some oil. To salvage them, you could try oiling the outside of the paper and letting them sit overnight. Then lightly microwave or steam them in the morning.

    Muffins sticking to their paper cups.... that's how I always get them when I buy them in a store/bakery. I'm always scraping the last pieces from the paper.

    I ended up cutting the bottom off as close to the paper as possible, then cutting around the sides. It took forever but seemed to salvage as much as possible. Thanks for the advice guys, I'm gonna spray them next time!!
