But in the mail I received a silicone muffin pan from an online offer thing.
So ... because I had these spiffy new silicone pans, I had never used silicone before, and I was craving chocolate, I decided to make some oatmeal chocolate chip muffins. I love these things and they're sort of my go-to recipe for yumminess. And the oatmeal makes me feel healthy despite all the chocolate. I'm not quite sure where I got the recipe from since I've had it for a while, but I've made it a few times (great each time). The recipe follows below.
So what do I think of silicone? Eh, works okay. It's kind of annoying because since the pans themselves are pretty flexible, you have to put them on a cookie sheet when baking so they don't flop all around. Also, they don't brown as nicely so the edges of my muffins looked uncooked and kind of weird. On the other hand, they did clean pretty nicely and they are blue .... They might grow on me, but for now I think I still prefer metal muffin pans and glass for everything else. But for just a dollar, could you find a better muffin pan?
