Muffin Tin Clean-up

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

I try to make muffins (or sweet breads) once a week around here, and cleaning up after making muffins can be such a pain in the...well, it can be a pain. The muffin mix drips all over the edges and then bakes itself on ever-so-nicely.
And trying to get the last little bit of yucks out of the bottom of the tin. Sigh.

So, I tried this little tip last week and it worked like a CHARM. I will so be doing this again. And if it worked for me, I might as well share it with you, right? I even took a picture I was so excited!

It's the little things that get to me. :)

1. Before you pour your muffin batter in, loosely lay a piece of tinfoil over the top of the muffin pan. Make a few slits in the tinfoil where the muffin openings are and then fold the tinfoil down into the muffin tin.

2. Spray the top with non-stick spray.

3. Place a muffin liner in each spot.

4. Pour your muffin mix in.

When you are done, your muffins pop right out and all you have to do is take the tinfoil off and rinse the tin. Yeah for no scrubbin'! :)


  1. we make muffins a lot around here, I have never heard of that before. Good idea!

  2. this is actually a great idea! with my luck though, the rare time i make muffins or cupcakes, i'd be out of tinfoil....

  3. So cool. So, the muffins are still touching the bottom? Just not the "corners"? I can't wait to try that!

  4. This is a GREAT idea! Thank you for sharing...I will definitely have to try it out!

  5. I love muffins. I HaTe cleaning muffin pans. Can't wait to try this idea, hopefully in my very own kitchen within the next couple of days!! :)

  6. I love your tips! please keep them coming...

  7. Great tip!

    Have you seen the new non-stick foil? YOu can wrap your pans in it or toaster oven pan and then just wipe it off when you are done cooking and reuse it! I rinse and wipe!
