I like to make muffins, but I hate the bits of batter that spill on the pan. They burn and make the oven smell bad, and they are hard to clean. Here I describe a novel use of a canning funnel to direct muffin batter into their cups without spillage.
A further application is for applying streusel or other dry topping to muffins.

Here's a convenient video!

Step 1: Use a Canning Funnel

A wide canning funnel fits exactly into a muffin cup. 

Step 2: Spoon in the Batter

You can add batter, and even adjust the level afterwards. The funnel holds the paper muffin cup in place, even with a sticky batter.

Step 3: Add Dry Topping

A clean funnel can be used to add a dry topping (pecan streusel is shown here) or fruit.

Step 4: Muffins!

We're done!
so smart, yet so simple

<p>This is so smart I can't handle it! Even after years of baking I still make a huge mess every time. :P</p>
<p>That is so clever! </p>
