Trouble Removing Flourless Chocolate Cakes from Muffin Tins

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I made a batch of flourless chocolate cakes in a 6 cup muffin tin and buttered the wells before adding the batter. After baking and cooling, several of the cakes were difficult to remove....only 2 of the 6 were presentable.

Is there something else I can use to get the cakes to release? Thanks much!

Try lining the cups with wax paper next time. I never make a flourless chocolate cake without lining it first. I've never made miniature ones, but may as well give it a shot with the paper!

When I used to make individual flourless chocolate cakes, I buttered and sugared the cups, like you would do for a souffle. They usually slid out easily. Maybe 1 time out of 4 I would have to loosen the cake with a knife to get it out.

Spray with oil or grease with butter, then dust with cocoa powder- if you're using flourless cake, it may be that someone is gluten intolerant, the cocoa can work on smaller cakes because they don't bake for as long as a large cake. I tried this method on a large bundt, and it stuck in a few places due to baking time. Also put a small round of baking paper at the bottom first in a greased muffin tin. Let me know how you go.

chill them down and then heat the pans to remove.
bake first, ask questions later.
Oooh food, my favorite!
