Vintage Ekco Pans and Strawberry Banana Muffins


I'm back!! And I have a sweet treat to share with you all. Years ago, when I first started shopping estate sales, I picked up a few of these cool Ekco muffin pans. Since then, I have tried several different recipes and different pan greasing techniques to try to avoid the muffins from sticking to the pan. And, while these pans are so cute, I had to shelve them because I was tired of my efforts sticking to the pan.

Yesterday, I felt the urge to bake and I needed to use up some fruit that was starting to turn. So with limited supplies in the pantry, I chose to try this recipe with the Ekco pans, since I could not find my regular pans. (The kitchen at Retroville isn't quite set up yet).


I swapped out the blueberries for strawberries and the result was delicious! And the best part....the muffins didn't stick to the pan!!! I sprayed a little bit of veggie cooking spray in the bottoms, but what I think really helped was that the main bonding agent in these muffins is veg oil, which helped make the muffins slide right out of the baking pan. I am so excited to finally find a recipe that works with these unique pans! Does anyone else have one of these Ekco pans?

Oh! and that lovely pink Depression glass plate that the muffins are resting on was a recent thrift score for only $3.50!

Welcome back! Your muffins (and the plate they're on) look amazing. I only wish I had an Ekco pan like yours! :-)

My mouth is watering looking at the picture of these strawberry muffins-- I have a lot of produce right now that I need to use up too.

I have the cutest heart-shaped vintage pans but they're decoration only due to their condition.
