Are you a “butter the muffin tins” kind of gal, or do you prefer to use baking cups when you make muffins or cupcakes?
I do a little of both, depending on the recipe. Sometimes, food likes to stick to the baking cup, wasting a lot of food and effort. So on recipes like Sloppy Cornbread Muffins, Crustless Breakfast Quiches and Pancake Sausage Muffins, I get out the butter and go to town on my muffin tins.
But for most other muffins, Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins, Orange Muffins, Coconut Flour Muffins…I find that once cooled, they come off the muffin paper just fine. It’s SO much easier to prep and to clean up when I use muffin cups. Or maybe I’m just lazy.
All that to say that I am running low on muffin cups. I prefer Unbleached Baking Cups because they are safer for my food and safer for the environment, but they can be pretty pricey. I hesitantly went to Amazon today to see if they’d cost me an arm and a leg this time or if they were a decent price for me to stock up.
Yipee!!! They were on sale and with subscribe and save I got them for just over $1/pack. This is an excellent deal for Unbleached Baking Cups, so I decided to share my joy with you (ah what little it takes for me to get excited).
In case you want to jump at this deal too, here are the specifics:
If You Care Unbleached Baking Cups at Amazon, $29.38/24 boxes which hold 60 muffin cups each. (If you’re a geek like me, you’ll be interested to know that this all equals $1.22/package and you get a total of 1440 muffin cups which is a lot of muffins!)
What to do with “subscribe and save”:
You’ll save an extra 15% on the cost of your item, plus receive free shipping if you select “subscribe and save”!! However, if you don’t want to be stuck with future cost and products, select delivery for every 6 months. Then, as soon as your items arrive, log into your Amazon account, click on “manage subscribe and save items”. There, you can cancel your subscription!
Last time I bought a case of muffin papers like this it lasted me well over a year. And we eat a lot of muffins. Apparently something like 1440 muffins over the course of a year. (That’s like an average of 120 muffins a month. What can I say? I still had my calculator out.)
Which do you prefer? Muffin cups, or lots of butter and effort? Or a little bit of both like me?
