Cup Size Matters


No, not that kind of cups, I'm talking muffin cups. Geez, get your minds out of the gutter. Gawd.
Anyway, there was a lot of talk on the P & Q this week about Allspice Crumb Muffins, specifically about streusel topping spillage. My solution: extra large muffin liners. I won't even go near a crumb topped recipe without them. I mean what's that point of all that buttery, sugary goodness sliding off your muffin onto the tin and surrounding oven surface? Or only filling the batter halfway and stunting what should be a beautiful muffin top?

Got spillage? Get bigger cups.

Perfect idea.


I have never seen extra large muffin liners around here where I live, but I imagine tulip liners would work too.

Ha! That was not only a great post, but a great idea! I had those extra large cups from Wilton, but I used them up for (you guessed it) crumb muffins. A different recipe, though.

Here's to the biscuits for next week!
