A Little Wonder!

I may be late to the boat, but I have discovered this little wonder…


I love making egg muffins for my kids so that they can have a little protein in the morning. I like to make a whole bunch and freeze most of them to save for another week. I also love to make my children their birthday cakes. I love being creative and making them into shapes that represent an interest they had that year and decorate them accordingly.

In times past I have had one major frustration that at times prevents me from doing exactly what I had planned. I hate trying to get them out of the muffin tin or pans!  They never come out in one piece! I will typically miss one little corner or the exact middle of the cake when I spray my pans and then I have a hole or tear that I have to fix in my decorating. With the egg muffins, my pans are a mess and so difficult to clean up. Yes, I could buy new pans that have better non-stick still on them or I could use muffin cups, but I’m not a fan of putting them in the microwave and I am too cheap.

Well, my problems have been solved with this little beauty!  🙂 Cooking spray with FLOUR in it.  (Here is the name-brand version.) Why haven’t I tried this before??? Now I suppose that I could do this myself the old fashioned way, but it is so much easier to have it all in one easy step.


I made egg muffins this weekend and I have NEVER had my pans come out so clean!! I also made an oatmeal/banana bars and the same thing happened. I was almost giddy, and I was literally trying to figure out another thing to make just to watch it come out of the pan so clean.


So if you have ever had this problem and you do not want to sprinkle flour all over your kitchen, this little trick is well worth the $1.98.

    This would only help with cakes but I use Wilton Bake-Even Strips on my cake pans. They help your cake bake evenly and I find that it also helps the cake come out of the pan more cleanly. Just be careful because, even though they’re cloth, they are just as hot as the pan when they come out of the oven!
