How to Warm Up the Mini Cakes As A Leftover Snack?
Oven (recommended method): Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Heat muffins until warm or lightly toasted, about 5 minutes.
Microwave (quick method): Alternatively, you can reheat the muffins in the microwave (one at a time). Cook in the microwave at 50% power until slightly warm, about 45 seconds to 1 minute 30 seconds depending on the power of your microwave.
I recommend 30 second intervals, this way you can avoid overcooking the cupcakes in the microwave which will cause them to become hard .
How to Store These Mini Cakes?
Before storing, be sure to let the cupcakes cool completely on a wire rack.
Transfer them to an airtight container lined with a sheet of paper towels.
Arrange them in a single layer and cover the top with another sheet of paper towels before sealing the container with an airtight lid.
Tip: Paper towels will absorb excess moisture from the muffins and allow them to stay fresher for longer.
You can store them at room temperature for 3-4 days.
Alternatively, you can store them in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
Can These Lemon Pies Be Frozen?
You can freeze for 2-3 months in your favorite freezer containers or ziplock freezer bags.
Let the mini cakes come to room temperature before enjoying them.
