Hey Beanie...

Let me say a little more about this.

I should have pointed out that the rack breaks down for flat packing. Another feature of the rack is the long bolt at one corner...that's for pulling it out after the muffin is done. It's difficult to get your fingers safely in there to pull just the muffin out.

When I first began muffins, I used the water method. The gloop was contained in a bagel-shaped silicone thingie. In the center, which is like a dry island in the middle of the gloop, I attached a nylon screw, which served as a safe handle to pull it out. For some unknown reason, I've not gotten around to using that in the dry oven.

The screw was attached as follows. Drill a hole in the island. Poke the screw through, with the head of the screw underneath and secure it with a nylon nut at the top of the island, so that the non-head end of the screw is the handle via which the whole thing is lifted. In retrospect, I guess the nut is probly not required if the hole is small enough.

During the winter of 2012-2013, we made lots of breakfast muffins. We found the browning to be much more yummy when the baking was shut down at boiling temperature or 1 degree F above it. Remember to take elevation into account (-1 degree per +500 ft) or bring some water to a full boil and read the thermometer.

Also, when I posted the stuff on the parchment paper muffin pan, I forgot to include a couple of important dimensions. If anyone is interested, I'll fix that.

Hi Wilder
That makes it a lot clearer.
I like the sound of your silicon bagel pan, I've not seen any of those over here yet but I guess I will have to keep a sharp eye out for one. I currently use the pan handle from a SVEA 123, its a flat strip of aluminum with a 90 deg bend at the end, I can just get it under the muffin case and hook it out. But its a bit of a faff!

Beanie...

I know that Svea pan. The Svea was my favorite stove for 15 years or so. Then I tried isobp, and stuck with that for another 15 years, but then had a problem that led me to diy alcohol stoves. During initial alky experiments, the Svea pot was my main "test tube". I sometimes regret that the pot doesn't quite fit my current gear mix.

And thanks for teaching me the new word "faff". I can't wait til I get the chance to use it in a conversation.

Here's one of the muffins from last winter. The black spot near the middle is the hole from the thermometer probe.
