Does anyone freeze muffins? I had a bunch of over ripe bananas and some pumpkin left over from pancakes and made muffins. I would like to freeze them as I don't need them right away. TIA

I do often.

I defrost and put them back in the oven to brown a bit so they are crisp again on the outside.

If I know I will be freezing them I take them out of the oven while they are still a bit pale, but done. "Par Baked" if you have ever done restaurant kitchen work.

Do you put them in freezer bags or wrap them in foil? I have never frozen breads, so not quite sure.

I put them in leftover chinese food containers and freeze them. If you take them out and let them defrost, they will be quite wet. A quick bake before serving is a good idea although nobody has complained about them being a bit sticky after freezing. They still go poof!

I use quart sized freezer bags and open them a bit when defrosting in the fridge to keep them from getting soggy.

You can put wax paper between the pancakes. Making it easier if you need just a few.
