Default Mini Cupcake Maker



So I am in CVS yesterday and I see this mini cupcake maker for $19 and change (can't remember the exact price) and I think wow, that is a good idea. I never make cupcakes or muffins any more because I end up forcing myself to eat too many before they go stale. Plus there's the mixing bowl, the cupcake pans, the cleanup. Do I REALLY want 2 dozen full size muffins? The answer is usually NO!

But seven minis is just the right amount... a couple of bites for each of us... I could make cornbread, all types of little muffins, stuff them with sweet and savory fillings... and I had visions of petit four like cupcakes dancing in my head. So it came home with me.

It's NICE. Non stick coating. I whipped up a whole cup of batter (Martha White's buttermilk cornmeal, an egg, honey, sugar, butter, salt, baking powder - just winged it) and had enough for 14 minis. They cooked through in 7 minutes and came out nice and puffy and light. The downside is, it didn't come with recipes. So you'll need to modify your favorites.

I told my foodie daughter about it and she said she heard from her friends that it worked really well (unlike all those gadgets we get that DON'T deliver on their promises). So go out and get one, and play.

Mine is American Era but there are at least three other makers that I see online.

Thanks this looks pretty cool! I don't know if any in my house really needs to be able to make muffins that easily, though !! We do like donut muffins, though! I did have to search and found this link, if I can't find FB's deal:
