Why You Should Ditch The Liners When Baking Muffins
By Hannah Beach
When baking cupcakes and muffins, you should ask yourself whether or not you want to use baking liners to make your delicious treats. While liners help to keep your baked goods moist, limit kitchen messes, and add an aesthetic quality to your desserts, we can't say which method is best, but the negatives might outweigh the positives.
Some experts claim using liners is one of the biggest mistakes you can make while baking muffins since they can get in the way of your treats baking properly. The Spruce Eats points out that liners are an added expense and can be tricky to size correctly if you have a bigger or smaller muffin tin.
An alternative to using baking liners is to grease your muffin tin or trade out your standard muffin tin for a silicone tin — a sustainable kitchen item that makes it super easy to pop out your cupcakes and muffins. Cupcake and muffin liners aren't entirely necessary, but they can still be fun to use.
