Make incredible homemade cupcakes with cupcake makers
Sometimes called the “George Foreman Grill” of the pastry world, cupcake makers are one of the most fun things to happen to cupcake baking since the invention of the cupcake tin. In less than ten minutes, you can create cupcakes, muffins, and many other snacks without ever heating up the oven. Each one is made with a non-stick surface that is easy to clean and a power on / ready light to let you know when to start baking. Another little bonus? You don’t have to use butter, oil, or grease so each cupcake is just a little healthier for you. These easy to use, portable gadgets are not only great for you, they make ideal gifts. With cupcake making this easy, do you have any reason to miss out on a sweet treat?
There are a few tricks to using cupcake makers, but they can be used for a lot more than just cupcakes. Most cupcake makers come with a recipe book that is full of different recipes you can use to make cupcakes, miniature pies, brownie bites, muffins, scones, and even quiche. When cooking with cupcake makers, you will need to keep an eye on your treats because some of the reservoirs may cook a little faster or slower than others. You can use a toothpick to test for “doneness”, and if they aren’t done you can simply close the lid and let them bake for a little longer.
Cupcake makers come in both regular and “mini” sizes. You can use cupcake papers or liners in either one, and it is a good idea to use them on anything sticky like brownies or cheesecakes. You will also want to avoid using anything sharp to take your finished treats out of the cupcake maker because it can scratch the non stick finish- instead, purchase a small spatula set to help take cupcakes out of the reservoirs. If you are ready to try a cupcake maker, the following are a few good choices.
