Tips For Baking Toaster Oven Muffins
Baking muffins in your toaster oven or countertop oven is easy but there are a few things you should keep in mind for any recipe.
- Bake Times are Just Suggestions. Toaster ovens preheat faster and bake quicker than a traditional oven. Check on your muffins early, about 2 to 3 minutes prior to the shortest baking time listed for the recipe.
- Make Adjustments for Convection. For the best results, lower the temperature by at least 25 degrees and begin checking for doneness early. You can read more about cooking with a convection toaster oven here.
- Choose Your Pan Wisely. Darker pans will bake your muffins faster and produce muffins with crispy edges. For lighter muffins, use a light-colored muffin pan. If you don’t own any small pans, here are the Toaster Oven Muffin Pans we use.
