Love your site Kat especially the recipes and tips. I have a question for you and your readers. Any muffin I make seems to stick to the paper case so a lot is wasted when the paper case is peeled off. Any tips ?? Thx Sue

Hi Sue, Hmm good question! I would try spraying them with a little cooking spray, i hope it helps. Let me know how you go.:)

Maybe try 4″ squares of baking paper instead of corrugated muffin cases. This was the inexpensive alternative we used to use in cafe where I worked, just push into muffin holes with a glass, spice jar or the round end of rolling pin.
