Perfectly sized muffins....
I make muffins quite often. They are the perfect "fast food" for mornings. I've been making different muffin recipes for years and each time I've used a spoon to get the muffin mixture into the muffin tin. A mess would ALWAYS occur and I'd always try my best to get all the little spills cleaned off the edges of the pan. What a pain.
But recently, I heard Ina Garten recommend using a regular ice cream scoop to, well, scoop the muffin mixture into the individual tins.
Aside from the fact that I have heard her mention this MANY times before and I COMPLETELY ignored her, you know what? It worked!! And it worked PERFECTLY, too, I must add!! All the muffins are incredibly close to being the same size! And it was MUCH quicker than trying to spoon it all in!!
I should have listened sooner!!!
