A Muffin Pan’s Many Uses
Have you ever thought about different ways to use a muffin pan/cupcake tin?
Well, we all know to use a muffin tin for fabulous muffins and cupcakes…
Raspberry Filled and Frosted Cupcakes
Biscuit and Egg Puffs Easy Mini Apple Pies
However, there are practically limitless ways to use these exceptional pans!
I love this idea for freezing leftover soup in muffin pans.
Since we home school, we are most often at home for lunch, and soup works great for lunches.
Just pop them out when they are frozen and put in a freezer bag,
then microwave for a quick meal.
Muffin and cupcake pans are awesome for organization as well.
Keeping a junk or desk drawer tidy
Keeping little girls’ hair accessories separated
Doing a search on Pinterest gave some more fantastic ideas for using all the muffin pans you could come up with:Mini quiches
- Mini meatloaves
- Pepperoni pizza puffs
- Freezing stock
- Cookie cups made from cookie dough
- Little round brownies
- Monkey bread
- Mini cheesecakes
- Candle holder
- For dyeing Easter eggs
- Making crayons
- Storing craft supplies
- Freezing single servings of ice cream for a party
I’m sure there are tons more ideas out there, but hopefully this will give you some new ideas. I know it did me!
I started using silicone muffin pans because my old metal pans were hard to clean and I wouldn’t get them dry enough, and they would rust. Now I’ve learned to put my pans back in the still warm oven after I wash them, so they get nice and dry and don’t rust. The silicone bakeware requires special care with handling because it’s floppy and can get punctured, so here is a link for some information that is helpful in taking care of it.
So many great ideas! I love the silicone pans too, they are a breeze to clean! I never thought of using it to freeze soup in portions. Fabulous!
I looove this! Never thought of this before! 😀
