Muffins sticking to paper liners

Ro asks: Is there any way to get muffins that are stuck in paper muffin cups unstuck?? Thanks for any help you can offer.

Baking S.O.S. says: The best thing to do is allow the muffins to cool completely before you try to peel the paper away.  Strange as it may sound, it actually gets easier to peel the papers away the more time the muffins sit.

Also, I recommend spraying the muffins papers lightly before scooping the batter in: it will help release the papers more easily.  (Though that technique does NOT work for cupcakes–it makes the papers FALL off the cupcakes!!)

Rule of thumb: spray the papers for muffins; leave the papers dry for cupcakes.
