Filling Muffin Tins
- Use a greased fruit funnel. The fruit funnel has a 2-inch opening on the bottom, a 4-inch opening at the top, and an easy-to-hold handle. The grease helps to keep batter from sticking to the funnel (Pam® is a spray on product that can be used for this purpose).
- Position the funnel in the muffin cup and spoon the batter into it. If you use measuring cups (the 1/4 or 1/3 cup size), or a small gravy ladle, this will help when filling the cups with batter. Normally, it takes two scoops using a gravy ladle to fill a muffin cup.
- Lift out the funnel and pause briefly to let any batter drip into the muffin cup before placing the funnel in the next muffin cup. This helps you have a neat muffin with no splatter on the sides or top of the pan.
