Cupcake Wrapper Problems
0

19 posts in this topic

Hello,

Most every muffin/cupcake recipe I have tried since going gluten-free 2 yrs ago has resulted with the muffin/cupcake sticking to the liner . The item will come out in muffin shape but always leaves behind a thin layer of muffin behind. I have used King Arthur ,and Pamela's, and Elana's pantry recipes with basically the same results every time.

Just wondering if this is common or should i be spraying the liner ??? anyone ?

I use the basic pastel colored liners (never the foil as I found these to change the cooking results) regular size not mini 's

Thanks

Are you using artificial sweeteners in your muffins or cupcakes? I made some muffins from Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix and used Splenda for the sweetener and they stuck to the paper liners much worse than when I use sugar. I've never tried spraying the liners with non-stick spray.

I've fallen in love with USA Pans and ordered the muffin/cupcake pan, which should be here today. Since they are so non-stick, I'm considering making muffins without using liners.

Hi-- I have had the same problem. I don't use artificial sweeteners, although that's a good point.

I recently made cupcakes (pictured in my av) using Betty Crocker Yellow Cake mix, and they came out of the liners beautifully.

Another thing I have noticed with other things such as corn muffins, etc. is to make sure the baked goods are completely cool before peeling off the liner.

SA, let us know how your new pan works out! Sounds great:)

I have those pans/sheets! I got them at Bed. Bath & Beyond. Love them!. They wash off nice because nothing really sticks to them. I don't think I have made muffins in them. I make the little hash brown and egg things in them & they come out great.

Kismet! I got a coupon for BB&B in the mail just yesterday. May have to go take a look this weekend :D

I have read that oftentimes gluten free recipes are more wet/moist and don't work as well with paper liners. I used foil liners and have better success.

I stopped the foil liners because they were burning on bottom even when I lowered temp and cooked longer. sigh I think my green thumb is just better than my bakers mitt.

I read somewhere that you should spray the inside of the cupcake liners to prevent sticking. :)

Karen, when you make the hash brown/egg thingies, do you use a paper liner? And if not, do you spray or grease the pan first?

I got mine today, as well as another 8-1/2 x 4-1/2" loaf pan for bread. I know for bread I do not spray or grease the pans and the bread falls right out without sticking.

Maybe I'll have to do a test run by baking a single cupcake-size quiche. I hate the non-stick spray as it always leaves a sticky residue.

My muffins made with rice flour and/or combined with tapioca flour have come out of the muffin liners just fine. But, once I did try to add some sticky rice (glutinous) flour to the mix, maybe 25%, and they really stuck to the muffin liner.

So I would suspect it has something to do with one of the ingredients? I haven't used any of those mixes, so I'm not sure.

The USA muffin pan is fantastic! I made Pamela's banana-nut bread recipe into muffins (with sugar), did not use liners or grease, oil or spray the pan. The muffins came out with no problem, no sticking. I am impressed. I just wiped the pan out when finished and didn't even have to wash it.

Now I wish all my pans were by USA. They are the most non-stick pans I own. http://usapans.com/index.html

I make King Arthur gluten-free Muffins quite often, and the directions on the package say to line the muffin pan with greased paper muffin cups, but the King Arthur chocolate cake mix says to use (ungreased) cupcake papers in a muffin pan when making cupcakes.

I've never greased paper cupcake liners in my life, and am not about to start. Both my King Arthur and Betty Crocker cupcakes always come out perfect without greasing. I use canola oil in all my recipes because I'm allergic to soy so maybe that is the reason they come out OK. I use Reynolds and Wilton baking cups--tried the foil ones and simply did not like them.

I'll have to look into the USA tins for future use...was at BB&B a few days ago and saw this product but did not have a coupon at the time.....they looked similar to King Arthur's pans.

The King Arthur pans are USA pans (at least the ones that are ridged). I bought a 9x4x4" loaf pan from KAF and the logo on the pan says USA Pan. The others I bought from Amazon as the prices were better. After checking availability, my closest BB&B didn't come up.

I should add that while Amazon does carry the USA loaf pan with a lid, I didn't feel like I need it and it was definitely more expensive.

I notice when I bake with coconut oil/flour I have almost no stick. With drier recipes (something that forms a crust) I will have stick. I think it's the fat ratio...

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?
