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...

    • Squirmingitch, I forgot to mention best of luck to you during the storm! I hope you are safe and that your home isn't impacted too badly! I'm on the coast in SC so we will see some storms from it but nothing near as bad as what you will have. Take care and good luck.
    • SquirmingItch, I really appreciate you gathering info for me! To answer your questions, yes, I'm on Dapsone now and have been on it for about 4.5 weeks. I have been gluten free for the same amount of time. I started on 50 mg of Dapsone which didn't seem to help much. I spoke to my doctor about it and after about a week she raised it to 100 mg. Since then I did notice a huge improvement in both my rash and itch. I no longer have any active rashes and my itching isn't completely gone but it's very minimal. I have been getting weekly blood tests done and will soon be moving to monthly.  My DH skin biopsy was done before the gluten free diet and Dapsone. My results for the skin biopsy came back as inconclusive, but even with those results, my doctor was convinced I had DH. I specifically asked her about the fact that she took the biopsy directly from the lesion rather than next to it and if that affects the result. Her explanation was that if it's a fresh enough lesion that isn't scratched, there should be IgA antibodies present. But she said that an inconclusive result isn't surprising because the IgA antibodies come and go from the skin so quickly that it can be very difficult to get a positive result, even in someone who is positive.  That's when she decided to run the celiac blood panel on me. And even though those results came back positive for the deamidated gliadin and negative for tTg, she still is very convinced that I have DH. I am happy that my doctor seems to be certain, but I would just feel better if the results were more definitive. The one other thing I am waiting on is I have been asked to attend grand rounds at the local academic hospital in 2 weeks. I guess grand rounds is where all of the academic dermatologists and dermatopathologists get together to review certain complicated cases. They will meet with me, review all of my pictures, biopsies and blood tests. My situation has been so complicated so they asked me to come. I am hoping maybe then I will get some more answers. 
    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
