      Need just two cupcakes or muffins? No need to measure 1/3 or 1/6 pf an egg or a small fraction of a teaspoon of vanilla. Just make up the entire recipe and freeze.

      The batter can be frozen in freezer/containers/ bags or even in muffin pans. You can thaw in the refrigerator and bake as usual. If using in a muffin pan, you can even bake frozen, just add about 15 minutes to the baking time.

      No more extra cupcakes tempting you.

      Wow. I just gained weight at the thought of never ending muffins in my house. Mmm.

      Sounds great. Thanks for the tip!

      You can use your muffin tins as “muffin cube trays”, simply fill them as full as you normally would for muffins, freeze and then run hot water over the bottom of the tin of frozen muffin batter for a few seconds to loosen them. Pop the frozen batter cubes into a vacuum seal bag and seal or use a ziploc. Then you have less room being used in your freezer until you’re ready to bake your muffins. 🙂

      This is going to work with more than just cupcakes and muffins around here! Thank you so much for sharing this – what a great idea!

      I have done this – it works great! I’ve also prepared a cake mix, put in two small square pans and frozen one to bake fresh at a later time. 😀

      This is a great idea! With this kids gone I’ve been learning to cook for two but still haven’t mastered it. This will help tremendously!

      You’re a genius! I love cupcakes but I do NOT need an entire batch loose in my house with just me there to eat them. I’m definitely going to try this.

      Thank you!
