What is your favorite pan for baking cupcakes?
I have a cheap-o grocery store pan that is starting to rust that does an okay job and a nice dark non-stick pan that gets the cakes too done or with too big of "hats". I'm not sold on either one!
I'm considering a stoneware pan and think Pampered Chef sells one but would like feedback from others before I invest.
its funny that you mentioned the pampered chef stone. I luv PC (i used to sell it), I have been using my stone muffin pan for years. Today I needed to make lots of cupcakes so i used a metal one as well. (my sister in law bought me this Wilton carrying case that came with mini muffin and muffin and a 9x13) I used both the metal and the PC one the Wilton one was great!!!
I am not a fan of the wilton pans but they came out great.
As unconventional as it may sound, I love my silicone muffin pans (from Ikea). I absolutely hate every other silicone pan I have bought subsequently, as cakes bake very inconsistently in them, but muffins/cupcakes in silicone have been turning out perfect in those same pans for some 4-5 years nowâ¦ The only tip is to butter the silicone, no matter what the directions say!
shisharka, I'm glad you mentioned the silicone pans. My sister and I were thinking of trying them but were fearful after all the bad reviews they've received on CC and other places. Maybe I'll try the cupcake pan after all. Do you butter them even with a liner?
I'd like to hear more feedback about the stoneware cupcake pans if anyone has experience with them.
