Quick Tip: Cupcakes and muffins

Heather says:

Did you know there is a standard measurement for the amount of batter?  When a recipe calls for the tins to be filled 2/3s full use 1/4 cup of batter.  If the tins are to be filled 3/4s use 1/3 cup of batter.   Some cooks use ice cream scoops in these sizes to quickly portion their baked goods.

    Speaking of muffin tins, a friend uses it when she makes salmon patties.

    Does everything she used to do before dropping the patties in hot oil in a skillet but now they are baked and are of equal size.

    Seems healthier – and neater – to me.
