Tutorial: DIY Parchment Muffin Liners

DIY Parchment Muffin Liners

October 15, 2015

Though I find the classic pastel pink, blue and yellow muffin tin liners to be perfectly adorable, its incredibly easy to make your own fancy-pants bakery-style parchment liners.

After whipping up a batch of autumn-inspired Turmeric Tea Spice Pumpkin Muffins, I knew ordinary just wouldnt do for these fragrant, tender beauties. This batch needed to be celebrated. Like, what would a muffin wear if it was accepting an award for being the best muffin ever? A timeless LBD is never a bad choice, but now is the time to shine in a dishy Prada, right?

I mean, if I was a couture-inclined muffin.

DIY Parchment Muffin Liners

Give your muffin delights the classy upgrade they deserve in just a few short minutes using the same white or rustic brown parchment paper you use to bake cookies. If you have basic measuring, folding and cutting skills, you are up to the challenge.

Look at the ethereal, crepey swirls enrobing those muffins. Does this make you an on-the-rise fashion house?

Ingredients
  1. 1 roll parchment paper, white or brown
  2. Scissors
  3. Ruler
  4. Muffin tin
FOR EXTRA LARGE LINERS (PICTURED)
  1. Measure out three 12-inch x 12-inch sheets of parchment.
  2. Fold the first sheet in half vertically, then again horizontally to make four 6-inch by 6-inch squares. Unfold. Repeat with remaining two sheets of parchment.
  3. Cut along the fold lines of the three sheets to make 12 individual 6-inch by 6-inch squares.
  4. Center a square over the first muffin tin hole. Press the square down in the center. The paper will naturally form folds when pressed into the circle. Press the paper folds against the walls of the muffin hole to mold the shape of the liner. Repeat until tin is full.
  5. Scoop muffin batter into the center of each liner - the weight of the batter will push the liner flush against the walls of the muffin tin holes.
  6. Bake as usual!
FOR REGULAR-SIZED LINERS
  1. Measure out one 12-inch x 16-inch sheet of parchment.
  2. Place the sheet with the long edge closest to you. Fold in half (put the two short edges together), then fold in half again to make four vertical columns that are four inches wide each. Unfold.
  3. On one of the short edges, mark the paper at three inches and at six inches. Fold the sheet into thirds by folding the top long edge at the 3-inch line and the bottom long edge at the 6-inch line. Unfold, and you should now have one sheet with twelve 4-inch by 4-inch squares outlined.
  4. Cut along the fold lines to make 12 individual 4-inch by 4-inch squares.
  5. Center a square over the first muffin tin hole. Press the square down in the center. the paper will naturally form folds when pressed into the circle. Press the paper folds against the walls of the muffin hole to mold the shape of the liner. Repeat until tin is full.
  6. Scoop muffin batter into the center of each liner - the weight of the batter will push the liner flush against the walls of the muffin tin holes.
  7. Bake as usual!
Notes
  1. If you don't have a ruler, you can eyeball the measurements - it is better to over-estimate your measurements than underestimate though, as you can always cut the finished squares down to size again if they aren't quite correct!
