How mini muffin pans changed my life.

8:18 PM

I will now tell you a story: 

For my first seven years as a homemaker I made do with a 12 cup mini-muffin pan.  Then one day I was at Wal-mart and I figured I would look to see how much another mini-muffin pan would cost.  Well, much to my surprise a 24 cup mini-muffin pan costs less than $10.  So I bought two.  And now I seriously make batches of mini-muffins or mini-cupcakes every week.  It's wonderful.

Mini muffins are great for kids, and giving away to people, and freezing, and enjoying in small portions, and, plus, they are just kind of cute.  

Also, when you make 24 mini-muffins instead of 6 big muffins you feel much more productive.

AND I think there is a higher frosting to cupcake ratio on a mini-cupcake than a large one.  Just sayin'!

So, my recommendation of the week:  go buy some mini-muffin tins and bake your little heart out.  

It will change your life!

  1. I love this! Haha, I know exactly what you mean by productivity. I was making chocolate chip cookies (I know, I'm so boring and normal), and I made 24 small ones instead of 9 big ones. That way you can eat more without feeling fat :)
