The other day I showed you a trick I use for pouring honey when making muffins (or “muffies” as my toddler calls them). It’s a great recipe because of its simplicity and because I only have to get one bowl, spoon and measuring cup dirty. It’s a one bowl recipe at it’s finest!
The thing is, I’ve always made a huge mess when pouring the batter into the muffin tins. Little drops would fall outside the muffin holes and burn on to the muffin tin when baking in the oven. Crusty batter does NOT make for easy cleanup!
Because I’m all for easy when it comes to cleaning, I experimented until I found 2 easy ways to pour the batter without making a mess.
The first way to easily pour the batter is to use a large measuring cup or bowl with a spout…kind of like this one. It can be tough to bake uniform sized muffins with this method, but is still quite effective.
The second way I found to pour the batter without leaving a mess is my favorite. Since my muffin tins can hold slightly more than 1/4 cup in each hole, I fill a 1/4 c. measuring cup with batter and fill each muffin hole. It pours the perfect amount of batter into each muffin tin all while keeping the rest of the muffin tin batter free. Plus, each muffin bakes to the exact same size. It kind of makes me look like the professional baker I am not :)
I’m certain there are other ways to pour batter without making a mess so I’d love to hear from you. Do you have an easy way to fill muffin tins?
