    To ease cleanup, I started using muffin pan liners. I tried several kinds but all seem to stick stubbornly to muffins. The solution is worse than the original problem. Is there a trick here I am missing?

    Gerdosh, I'm glad you asked that.  I solved it once greasing the papers, but that is a royal pain! 

    I await the magic reply.......

    Does non-stick spray work for muffins?  Im not much of a cook and would like to try baking if the muffins wont stick!

     Spray paper liners lightly with pam or pan spray, they should not stick. Do not try to remove while hot or even warm let cake set.

    I made some chocolate cup cakes a couple of weeks ago. I used liners because I wa taking them to a friends house. I saw these "green" liners at Whole Foods - 100% recycled materials and labeled non stick. And guess what - they were!! Cup cakes came out clean as you'd like. The brand name is "If You Care".

    another option, if you like, is silicone muffin liners.  They are sold at the dollar store.  I've never had a problem with them sticking, and they wash up easily for reuse.

    The paper ones all stick but the aluminum foil ones always peel right off for me.
