Comments & Reviews

Do you put a patty pan in the terracotta pot or butter the inside of the pot and pour batter in


Hi Liz,

The best method for these cupcakes is to butter a cake tin and cook without a patty pan. However please make sure the tin is well greased so the cupcake doesn’t stick as you remove it!
