Muffin pans aren’t just for making muffins! You might be surprised to learn that many of your favorite desserts, snacks and dinner foods can be prepared with the help of the humble pan. Here are a mix of four sweet and savory recipes you can make in a muffin pan that are both delicious and creative.

1. Muffin pan corn dogs

These corn dogs make a great appetizer or afternoon snack — and if you have kids, they’re sure to be a hit. The corn dogs are made by filling a muffin pan with corn dog batter, then placing small hot dogs in the center, and baking. The result is a tray full of perfectly golden corn dog cupcakes that are easy to share. 

2. Muffin pan pineapple upside-down cake

Muffin pan pineapple upside-down cakes are as beautiful as they are delicious. The colorful cakes are made by placing pineapple rings into each cup of a muffin pan, adding a cherry to the center, then pouring cake batter on top. Once the cakes are baked, just remove them from the tin, flip them over so the pineapple is on top, and serve them up!

3. Muffin pan apple pie

These tiny apple pies are adorable! The pies are made just like a full-sized apple pie, using pie dough, apples and spices. To make them, line each baking pan cup with pie dough and fill them with apple mixture. Just make sure to chop your apple into extra small pieces so they’ll fit easily into the muffin pan cups.

4. Muffin pan bacon and eggs

These muffin pan eggs make a delicious quick breakfast. Just pour eggs into your muffin tin, add some crumbled cooked bacon and shredded cheese, and bake in the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Your bacon and egg muffins will be ready in just 15 minutes!
