Received a mini-cupcake pan for a gift...what different things can I bake in that?
I have 4 mini-cupcake pans. I use them for mushroom cups...as a hot appetizer. Mostly I make mini-cupcakes/corn muffins. If you're entertaining & want to make up a dessert platter, it's nice to have the mini's so guests can take different kinds & just have a bite. I also use them when I serve Sunday morning coffee & 'cookies'....make a batch of the mini's & people like just having a bite to hold & not carrying around a crumbling cup cake. Just the right size for kids too.

Broccoli-Cheese Mini-Muffins posted by deweydecimalHere's a way to get the full flavor of broccoli bread in just 20 minutes. Serving: 20Prep Time: 7 minutes minutesCook Time: 13 minutesTotal Time: 20 minutesCooking oil spray 1 ½ cups frozen broccoli cuts (pieces) 1 large egg 1/3 cup skim or low-fat milk ½ cup already finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese 1 package (8 ½ ounces) corn muffin mix 1. The oven should be already heated to 400 degrees. Spray two 12-cup mini-muffin tins well with cooking oil spray. 2. Place the broccoli in a 2-cup glass measure and microwave, uncovered, on high, for 2 minutes. 3. Meanwhile, break the egg into a 2-quart bowl and beat with a whisk or fork to break it up. Add the milk and beat well to blend. Stir in the cheese. Stir in the muffin mix just until the dry ingredients are moistened. 4. Remove the broccoli from the microwave and press out any excess water. Finely chop the broccoli and add it to the batter. Using a tablespoon or a cookie-dough scoop, fill the prepared muffin cups about two-thirds full. When the batter is used up, fill the unused cups halfway with water, to prevent burning. 5. Bake in the middle of the oven until the muffins just begin to brown around the edges and spring back when touched, 12 to 14 minutes. Serve warm.Based on individual serving.Calories: 70Total Fat: 3 gCarbohydrates: 9 gProtein: 2 g
