|Wild Mushroom Bread Pudding Cups in my fancy muffin tin|
I’m already a huge fan of these Pans, so I’m very excited to share these pans with my readers. I found them while shopping at Bread Beckers, when one of the other customers was looking for them because, as she said, her daughter swears by the fact that it’s impossible for anything to stick to the pans. I’d been through half a dozen muffin pans or so in the past five years, because I kept scorching them, rusting them out and also just being disappointed in their quality.
At that point, I’d just been buying whatever was cheapest and running it into the ground. But I was ready to invest a bit more in a better pan. I received a lot of great suggestions, but since I’d just heard that great in-store testimonial at Bread Beckers about these Pans, my interest was further piqued when I saw the name come up among the suggestions. And I couldn’t be happier with my decision. I was a little bit worried when I got them home, because I realized that the company’s recommendation was to not wash the pans in the dishwasher (over time, it can wear off the silicone coating). I’m not a big fan of hand-washing, but who is, really? But the truth is, I’ve only ever had to truly “wash” them a couple of times. After most muffins, I can just wipe the crumbs out with a soft towel and put the pan back into the cabinet.
But I think my favorite moment using a these pans was while I was making one of my first batches of muffins in the muffin pan. I stuck a toothpick in to check if the muffins were done and the whole muffin came out on the toothpick like a little muffin popsicle. I’m not ashamed to admit I squealed in delight. 🙂
I really think you’ll all love these pans; I think they’re the best of both worlds combination between metal pans and silicone pans. They don’t flop about like the purely silicone variety, but they’re nonstick coating is like having a silicone pan. And, bonus, you don’t have to use spray, grease or papers. I even made a recipe this week (Wild Mushroom Bread Pudding Cups) that called for parchment paper circles to line the bottom of the pans, and didn’t need the parchment at all. How awesome is that?
