My Favorite Muffin Pan and Recipes

Today I am keeping it real by sharing a cooking disaster. Because although we don’t like to admit it, we all have them! I am also sharing why I love my muffin pan and a few of my favorite muffin recipes. Gluten Free Muffin Recipes

It is no secret that my family loves muffins. We make them all the time because they work great for a quick breakfast, lunch, snack, or dessert.

Because we love muffins so much I am always working on new muffin recipes. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you might have seen this picture and caption.

Muffin Pan Before

Well this gluten free recipe is going to need some more work… So not looking forward to cleaning that pan. Just keeping it real for you!

I was really dreading cleaning that pan, but the reality is that I was more afraid that I had ruined my favorite muffin pan. 

I have mentioned before how much I love USA Pans. Their cookie sheets, muffin tins, and cake pans are my favorite. I am slowly replacing all my pans with USA Pan ones.

One of the reasons that I love USA Pans is that not only do things bake well in them, but they also clean up well. They come clean with very little effort.

But I had never had something quite this bad to clean up before. It was a mess!

I did not have anything to worry about though. The pan cleaned up perfectly. I could not believe how easy it was to clean. All that sugar and butter mixture that over flowed and burned on that pan came right off.

My Favorite Muffin Pan Before and After

I really could not believe how clean I was able to get the USA Pan. It looks the same as it did before I had my muffin disaster.

The only thing I used to clean it up was soap and water. That is it. I did get to it right away, which I am sure helped because the mess did not have time to completely harden, but I am pretty sure the main reason this pan came clean is the amazing coating that it has on it.

My cooking disaster reaffirmed my love of USA pans!

If you are looking for a new muffin pan, cookie sheet, or cake pan give USA Pans a try. If my burned on mess comes clean I am pretty sure just about any baked on mess will come off these pans.

  1. We’ve all had our muffin disasters, Lynn, I’m sure. My latest was a couple of weeks ago trying a new recipe that was just blah. So I went back to my favorite recipe from Country Living magazine from 1982. I made this recipe just this two days ago and it turned out delicious as usual.

    I totally agree with you about the USA pans! I got a small sheet pan a few years ago when they were promoting them at Christmas at Bed Bath and Beyond. Now I wish I had bought two instead of just one! These pans are fantastic and I will be looking to replace older pans with these USA pans.

  2. We love muffins at our house! Right now we’ve got pizza muffins (like savory kitchen sink muffins) and dried berry muffins. My husband’s coworkers are jealous. 🙂

    Lynn is right. USA Pans are the BEST!! I replaced all of my cookie sheets, muffin tins and also have their brownie bite pan. These pans are made so well. They do not warp in a hot oven, clean up is a breeze, NOTHING sticks to them. And this is saying a lot, because I do a lot of low-fat cooking replacing oils and such with applesauce and my muffins still come right out.

    If you have a Bed, Bath and Beyond near you, the carry the line and that’s where I got mine. You can use their 20% coupons to score great deals on these high quality pans.

    As a side note, a lot of times I don’t want the hassle of extra clean up. So, I will line my muffin tins with paper parchment liners. I tried using regular paper liners in the past, but they always stuck to my foods. But the “If You Care” parchment paper liners release completely each and every time.

  4. I love my USA Pans! I never use paper liners, the muffins always pop right out.
