3 Ways to Freeze Cupcake Batter
I love being able to freeze food for a later time, especially when I know it’s something we won’t use all at one time such, such as cupcakes. Most cupcake recipes make 24 cupcakes, and unless your making them for a large birthday party or a childrens classroom party, we hardly ever eat more than 12 cupcakes. Freezing cupcake batter works great and is a great time saver! Now you can freeze batter three different ways which makes whipping up a couple fresh cupcakes when you need them a breeze!
How can I freeze cupcake batter?
There are three simple ways to freeze batter and the way you chose kind of just depends on space and what is easiest for you.
1. Freezer safe Ziploc bag: Pour your cupcake batter into a freezer bag and freeze flat. When you are ready to make your cupcakes allow batter to thaw, cut a corner of the bag and pour into cupcake liners and bake as usual.
2. Individual cupcake liners. Pour your cupcake batter into your cupcake liners as you normally would. Pop your cupcake pan into the freeze and allow batter to freeze just until solid, also referred as flash freezing. Once frozen, put your filled cupcake liners into a freezer safe Ziploc bag until later use. When ready to bake cupcakes allow to thaw slightly and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
3. Disposable muffin pans: Place cupcake liners into a disposable muffin pan. I usually find mine at the dollar store. Fill liners with batter. Cover and freeze the whole pan until later use. When ready to bake cupcakes increase baking time by 5-7 minutes. This is my last choice of freezing cupcake batter only because I don’t normally have the freezer space for a muffin pan.
