Yes, you can call me crazy. But I’ve done it – I baked muffins in a pan.
Bake muffins in a pan
When I realized I wouldn’t have an oven neither a microwave in my temporary apartment in the Netherlands, I was not really happy about it. How should I survive three months without baking? Exactly, it’s impossible. So I researched on the Internet for like-minded people and actually found this page, which describes how to bake bake muffins without oven in a pan.
- fill the bottom of a pan with 2 – 3 fingers of salt
- heat pan with the salt over medium heat for a few minutes
- divide batter evenly among silicon muffin cups and put them into the pan.
- cover the pan
- reduce heat and bake over low heat
- Baking time can be a bit longer than in the oven
It only took me 3 tries to figure out the right amount of salt so the muffins finally didn’t burn. However, I have the idea the muffins do not get really golden brown – or I’m just too impatient for that. But the muffins taste as good as the ones out of the oven ;)
