Muffin pans

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

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 25F (14C) or the baking time shortened.
