Baking Cupcakes in Coffee Filters?

I have a cupcake pan that holds very large cupcakes. I decided I wanted to make some cornbread muffins. I wanted to use cupcake liners but did not have any that size, I tried to find them in the store but no one carried them. I had an idea - coffee filters!


I have a 4 cup coffee maker which is the perfect size for my muffins. I folded a filter in half and cut about one half inch off, unfolded it, sprayed it with olive oil spray and placed it in the cupcake pan. It fit perfectly. I filled them half full, baked them, and it all turned out great.

When push comes to shove you can always come up with something - my mother always told me there are no problems only solutions. I hope someone can use this idea!
