I made corn muffins to eat with my lentil chili (shut up, Evan!). I bought paper muffin cups, but the apartment didn’t come with a muffin pan. I figured that I could put the paper cups into a baking dish, and bake the muffins that way.
The muffins baked, but the paper cups didn’t hold their shape. Result: delicious but flat muffins.
If I want to make muffins again, I need a muffin pan.
