So you've made muffin batter and greased all 12 muffin cups, only to find that you ran out of batter after filling 11. Now the spray or butter will burn onto that empty cup and be a devil to clean! Prevent this by filling the cup half full with water before you pop it in the oven. The water will keep the cooking spray from burning on, and the extra moisture never hurts when baking muffins or cupcakes. (Ok, these are meatloaves in this picture, but you get the idea.)
