Can you freeze muffin batter? YES! Since I’ve already shown you how to freeze muffins once they’ve been baked, I wanted to spend a couple minutes to go over freezing muffin batter so you’re ready for any muffin related emergency that might come your way.
Having frozen muffin batter in your freezer ensures you can have freshly baked muffins any time you please.
Muffin Batter Freezing Tips
Always freeze muffin batter inside paper liners. Doing this makes it much easier to simply take out the paper liner and bake when you’re ready.
It really is as simple as that! All you have to do is take them out of the freezer, place them back into the tin, and bake.
Add a few more minutes of baking time if you take the batter directly out of the freezer.
I usually use a freezer-safe bag to store my muffin batter because that is what works best in our small freezer.
I place my frozen muffin batter in the bag and try to squeeze out as much air as I possibly can. I then take that bag and place it in another freezer bag to prevent freezer burn. When my bag is empty, I then rinse it, let it dry, and use it again for the next batch. I reuse the bag as many times as I can.

How to Freeze Muffin Batter
- Paper liners
- Muffin/cupcake tin
- Your favorite muffin recipe
- Freezer-safe container or bag
- Place paper liners in your muffin/cupcake tin.
- Follow your muffin recipe, and mix the ingredients well.
- Scoop out your muffin batter into the paper liners.
- Place the entire muffin tin in the freezer (on a flat surface) and freeze until solid (at least 2 hours).
- Once the muffin batter is completely frozen, take the paper liners out of the tin and place them in a freezer-safe container or bag.
- Return the batter to the freezer.
- When you’re ready to bake the muffins, place the liners inside the muffin tin as needed, and bake accordingly (adding a few minutes to the baking time if taken immediately from the freezer)
Using a large ice cream scoop can ensure that you divide the batter equally for each muffin.
