Day 7… How to Freeze Muffins

How to freeze muffins :: the prairie cottage

I like this method of freezing muffins the best!  It will work with all of your favorite muffin recipes.  So easy to have them fresh from the oven in the morning and you only have to do the prep work once!

I found this recipe on Pinterest.  But use any recipe you may already enjoy.  I like to double the recipe, bake a few and freeze the rest for later.

Freezer Directions:  Spoon batter into muffin cups in a muffin tin.  Flash freeze for 30-60 minutes, then remove from the muffin tin and place in zipper bags or freezer containers.  Label and return to freezer.

To bake, remove desired amount of frozen muffin cups from the freezer.  Put them back into the muffin tin and bake at 375 for 20-30 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.

Hmmm. I've never frozen unbaked muffins! I always bake my first. I'm going to have to give this a try sometime soon!
