Muffin pans are used for baking muffins, popovers, cupcakes, tartlets, and miniature quiches and pizzas. Miniature pans hold about 1 1/2 tablespoons, standard about 1/2 cup (4 fl oz/125 ml), and oversized about 3/4 cup (6 fl oz/180 ml). Small muffins or cupcakes may take a few minutes less to bake, oversized a few minutes more. Whenever possible, choose nonstick pans. If they have dark surfaces, which absorb heat more easily, the baking temperature may have to be decreased by 25°F (14°C) or the baking time shortened.
