There’s nothing better than taking that first bite of a warm, fresh-from-the-oven muffin – but there’s nothing worse than when that perfect muffin is all too reluctant to release itself from the grips of the paper cup it’s wrapped in. To virtually eliminate the undesired broken muffin from your kitchen, add Culinary Parchment Baking Cups to your list of necessary ingredients.
With the inherent non-stick properties of parchment, gently peeling back the natural golden paper will reveal perfectly delicious – and intact – muffins and cupcakes every time. And experimenting with the mini, large and extra large sizes will add diversity to your baking.
For the adventurous chef in you, think outside of the cup – because this baking essential is not just simply for baked goods. Try combining olive oil, chopped vegetables, herbs and an egg together in a parchment cup and bake in a cooking ring for about 10 minutes. Simply peeling away the paper will uncover a beautifully molded baked egg. Place a small strip of crispy bacon on top of the egg as part of the presentation for a special touch.
Baking Cups can also make seemingly complicated dishes less intimidating for the everyday chef. Gazpacho jelly, a Spanish-style cold soup set in cubes or other molded shapes, may seem like a dish reserved for the masters. But using parchment cups to set the ingredients will help maintain a perfect shape without sticking when it comes time to serve.
Since all Culinary Parchment products are 100% biodegradable, using Baking Cups in the presentation of all types of food, from individual hors d’oeuvres to single serving desserts, will create an environmentally conscious foundation for any meal.
