Reusable Muffin Cups


Muffins are a breakast favorite around our home. They are quick to mix up and are a versatile (especially if you follow the Tightwad Gazette formula!) way to use up leftover bits and pieces of fruits, nuts, grains and more. My only problem is that I am always running out of muffin cups! I haven't found a source that is cheaper than $1.00/package around here, except for those after holiday sales when I can occasionally find some marked down. A few weeks ago I made it to a local rummage sale and found reusable Crate & Barrel muffin cups for $3! I was a little skeptical about how they might work, but they are great! I haven't had to grease them and they are fairly easy to clean. They are made of silicone and don't even need to go into a muffin tin if you don't have one. I'll post a pic later after I get some batteries in my camera. Tammy's Recipes has some great kitchen tips this week along with excellent muffin recipes!

I saw the Wilton ones at the craft store and always wondered about them. I have faith in their baking ability (I love Silicon) but thought they might be a pain to clean.

Good to know people like them!

Now if only I could find a one of those handy 50 % off coupons....

:)

I wondered about these too. I think I need to make more muffin breakfasts. So easy to grab on my way to work.
