    Have you grease you cases before putting the muffins? If not, that's the reason why it sticks. :)

    Chefross, i've tried paper liners, but the muffins stick to them too.  I started having problems with stuff sticking since i moved to italy.  Now there is parchment paper and that worlks well, but i can't find muffin cups that are made of stick-proof paper.  here at least.

    Look online for the new Reynolds Wrap liners as well as any silicone coated paper liners.

    Not only functional, but they come in some beautiful colors and prints.

    Greatest invention since sliced bread, IMO.

    Expect to pay a bit more.

    You could spray, I suppose, but then you are running the risk of a greasy result.

    Another thing is to wait until the muffins are cool before attempting to "peel".

    Don't know why but this seems to help.

    Use Parchment cupcake liners, put in pan then spray them nothing sticks. This also helps if your crown on muffin or cupcake  goes over, it wont stick to cupcake pan either.
