How to Cook With Foil Baking Cups


Many home bakers use baking cups to line muffin pans; cups have largely replaced having to grease or grease and flour the pan. Baking cups come in various sizes and styles, such as small, medium, large and paper or foil. Foil cups are a good choice if you are planning to freeze your creations, so they will not get soggy when thawing. Find out more about cooking with foil baking cups below.

Things You'll Need

  • Batter or dough
  • Wax paper
  • Cookie sheet or muffin pan
  • Baking cups
  • Follow your favorite recipe to make a batter or dough, cover with wax paper and set it aside.

  • Line a muffin pan with foil baking cups or set the foil baking cups on a cookie sheet. The foil baking cups can stand by themselves so you do not need to use a muffin pan, but it is easier to do so.

  • Remove the paper separators between the foil baking cups and pour the batter into the foil cups. Fill them a little over half way. If filling the foil baking cups with cookie dough be sure to lightly grease them before adding the dough.

  • Set the pan in the oven and bake according to the recipe instructions. If the recipe does not state a baking temperature, 325 to 350 degrees is a pretty safe temperature for baking just about anything.

Tips & Warnings

  • When using baking cups you do not need to grease the muffin pan first.
  • If you run out of batter and cannot fill every slot in the muffin pan, do not use an empty baking cup; instead, fill these slot about halfway full with water.
  • Also use foil baking cups to make individual little meat loaves.
