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...

    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura (but no headache) lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?
    • Diagnosis and Test Results
      I am sorry that you are sick!  😔.  I think you need to find out which celiac antibody tests were given.  Often just the TTG Is ordered for initial screening.  This test catches most, but not all celiacs (like me!)   You also need to see if they gave you the igA deficency test too.   Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)   -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)     http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You can go gluten free, but knowing if you have an autoimmune disease is helpful.  celiac disease is genetic (you have the genes, but so does 30% of the population and that's why the gene test is used only to exclude celiac disease and not diagnose it).   All family members should be tested even if they are symptom free.   I hope you figure it out and I am sorry that you had such a horrible experience.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
