urmaniac13, I saw some extra large muffin pans for a reasonable price on Amazon. (9.99 USD) I'm assuming they ship everywhere. If you can get your hands on one pan, it's definitely worth it.

I would think the cups need to be more full to produce the effect. I haven't had a problem with that, but I ususally fill my cups about 2/3 full and they rise very well. Good luck on your next effort.

urmaniac13, one way to get the effect you are looking for is to take a narrow metal spatula, dip it in a vegetable oil and stick it into the center of the top of the batter in each muffin. After making the first dip turn the spatula slightly and dip again to make an X form on each muffin. Bake as normal and it will make the muffins expand up and over on the sides like you want. I learned this working in bakeries many years ago.

Welcome to the family Urmainiac!! We're glad you're here.

How lucky you are to live in Rome! We were there about 7 years ago ( heat was horrid!!) but, we had such a great time. The views and the food are beyond compare.
We camped out at "HAPPY CAMPING" not to far from St. Peters. There's a small or was a small diner there... oh GOODNESS the dinner we had that night was to die for. Thanks for making me remember it all.
smiles, Trish
