What is the difference between a muffin and a cupcake?

A cupcake is more of a mini cake, where as a muffin can be more savory than sweet and it usually has some type of fruit mixed in with it.

Why did my muffins fall flat?

Something went wrong in the cell structure of the muffins resulting from the oven not being hot enough.  If this happens adjust the temperature of your oven from 400 to 425.  You may need to reduce the baking time, so watch carefully.

Should you grease non stick muffin pans?

Yes.  Spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray and then run a paper towel around the muffin cup so its not too saturated.  If you spray too much then the bottom of your muffins will get soggy.

What size are muffin tins?

They come in various sizes, but a standard muffin tin either has 6 or 12 muffin cups.

Why are my muffins sticking to the cupcake liners?

The liners stick to your muffins due to the lack of moisture inside the oven.  To prevent the liners from sticking you can add a rimmed sheet pan to the bottom rack of your oven with a small amount of water in it to create the moisture needed so the liners won’t stick.
