About the OvenArt Silicone Muffin Pan
OvenArt Solves The Problems of Metal Muffin Pans
As you probably know, metal muffin pans have frustrating drawbacks. Metal rusts, wraps, and wears down with use. Stuck-on food is annoying and a nightmare to clean. And then there are the chemical nonstick coatings that eventually scrape off and only leave you wondering if it all went into your food.
A Nonstick Muffin Pan That’s Worth It
We make our much loved silicone muffin pan with an expensive grade of pure 100%, high quality European silicone. Soon, you’ll be confidently turning even the stickiest and messiest recipes into delightful muffins, cupcakes, cornbread, egg muffins and more. Food will slide out effortlessly and bake perfectly every time using your safe, BPA-free, filler-free, and worry-free silicone bakeware.
Cleanup Is A Breeze
Isn’t it annoying to have to soak and scrub a pan? You’ll really appreciate how easy this muffin pan cleans up. The magic nonstick baking cups clean with a little detergent and water or you can toss the pan in the dishwasher. With such an easy cleanup, why stop at making muffins and cupcakes? Enjoy delicious non-muffin recipes such as taco cups, crab cakes, mini lasagnas, and frozen desserts (it’s safe for the oven, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher).
Perfect For First-Time Silicone Bakers
New silicone users love the results batch after batch. They enjoy healthy homemade treats and save on store-bought packaged goods. This high quality muffin pan is protected by the OvenArt “Better Muffin” Guarantee for lifetime assurance against defects and performance issues.
Here is the recipe I used to make these muffins:
Lemon Blueberry Muffins Ingredients
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 whole egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Zest and juice of 1 medium sized lemon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup fat free plain yogurt
1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
additional granulated sugar to sprinkle on top (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your OvenArt Silicone Muffin Pan by lightly spraying the cups with cooking spray.
In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream butter and sugar together. Mix in egg and vanilla. Add the lemon zest and lemon juice. Mix until just combined. Add in salt, baking soda, baking powder and flour. Add yogurt and mix until smooth. Gently fold in the blueberries.
Divide batter among muffin cups to about 2/3 full. I use a 1/4 cup measuring up for accuracy and it keeps it from getting messy. Sprinkle the tops with granulated sugar (optional)
Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool before popping the muffins out.
A few items to note:
- It’s best to place the OvenWare Silicone Bakeware on a cookie sheet before filling the cups. I put my muffin tin on a cookie sheet prior to baking anyway, especially since the “Scalloped Potato Disaster of 2012.” But in this case it will help keep the pan stable so you can easily transfer it from counter to oven and back again.
- Lightly grease the cups with cooking spray. I did this the first time I used it and it make getting my muffins out painless. You can still use baking cups for special occasions.
- The silicone cools faster then the metal ones so you can pop the muffins out by turning it over or pushing up from the bottom.
- You’ll also find clean up a breeze.
In all, this was so easy to use and super easy to clean up. No scrubbing those metal tins for me! I love this!
