What happened to my muffins?

Michelle | Apr 5, 2005 06:19 PM

Hello,

Looking for some advice...I've made a few batches of muffins and used a silicone muffin pan. On batch 1, the first group baked kind of stuck to the pan, the tops came off and I had to use a spoon to dig the bottoms out. Subsequent groups came right out, no problem.

On batch 2, every group I baked, the muffins would not come out whole! Every single time, the tops broke off the bottoms. First, I thought I needed to cook them longer at a lower temperature, but that didn't help. (The original recipe was 400 deg. for 20 minutes. I also tried 325 deg. for an hour.) Nothing worked!

Could it be the silicone pan? While I like the idea of them, I've got half a mind to pitch it and go back to the metal pan and the paper liners! Thanks for any tips.
