Mixed Berry Muffins in Parchment Paper Wrappers


Crisp parchment paper wrappers give these berry muffins a ‘just from the bakery’ feel.

Berry Muffin with parchment wrapper

I have a love affair with muffins from a bakery.  I don’t make them at home too often, and I’m not sure why….other than I think I’m a sucker for how they look in the bakery case.  I drool over the big jumbo sized muffins, and how gorgeous they look when they are presented in a brown parchment wrapper.

A few weeks ago, I picked up a jumbo muffin pan and decided to to be a real wizzard in my kitchen and whip up a batch of my own “bakery style” muffins, lining them with parchment paper wrappers, thanks to some tips I found from the queen of the kitchen……..Martha Stewart.

MY! aren’t you gorgeous!

Muffin Wrappers How To

I love the look of unbleached parchment paper (but you could use white as well)- cut 5-6″ squares for the jumbo size muffins

Spray muffin tins with a little cooking spray (this will help hold them in place)
Place one square of parchment into one cup of the muffin tin, pressing the folds to crease (it’s not going to be perfect, just do the best you can) – repeat with each muffin cup.
Fill cups 2/3 full with batter and bake.
After they cool, tie with a piece of twine or ribbon to make them extra pretty

I had picked up a bunch of yummy berries at Sams Club the other day…… I decided on mixed berry muffins.

Berry Muffins recipe

Mixed Berry Muffins in Parchment Paper Wrappers

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 6

Mixed Berry Muffins in Parchment Paper Wrappers


  • 1 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 eggs
  • 3/4 cup berries, cleaned and cut if needed


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Line jumbo muffin pan with paper liners.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt with wire whisk.
  4. Make a well in the center of dry ingredients and add buttermilk, oil, extract and eggs. Stir just until combined.
  5. Fold in berries.
  6. Fill muffin liners 2/3 full with batter.
  7. Bake for 22- 25 minutes for jumbo muffins or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  8. Remove from muffin tray and cool on a rack.


Handle the batter as little as possible – too much handling will cause the muffins to be tough.

Variations: use any berries or combination of berries you like.

    Those rustic wrappers are adorable! They definitely elevate the humble muffin!

  2. 3

    I’m totally gonna try those wrappers like that.

  3. 4

    Thank you for this neat idea! Love it. Now I’ve got to find some unbleached parchment. I’ve never seen it anywhere in stores. I’ll be on the lookout for sure now. :)

  4. 5

    how hard is it to get unbleached parchment paper??

    And i love the straw, I even looked to see if it was like the ones I have but NOT. So tell me about them, also.

    This looks so inviting.
    THANKS for the inspiration

    I love those cute little wrappers, especially with the little piece of twine around them.

  6. 7

    I am loving those wrappers like that! Gorgeous!!!

  7. 8

    I am SO going to try that! And can you believe I don’t have a jumbo size muffin tin? Everyone in Texas should have Texas size muffins!

    You absolutely positively 100% did an amazing beautiful job on these!!!! Gorgeous!

    Love the way the parchment paper does double duty – ease of clean up and makes a great presentation. Thanks for sharing with us, definitely doing this next time I make muffins for someone!

    Funny thing – I have parchment paper in my drawer and never use it, but I will now! LOL

  13. 14

    I just ordered some parchment! Thanks for the great post, the beautiful pictures, and the wonderful recipes!!!

  14. 15

    So very pretty – and fun!! And with berry season ready to burst, I can’t wait to try your muffins – thanks, Cheryl!

  15. 16

    I think I may be the only person who leaves my muffins naked. I just spray the pans and go for it. I like the way the outsides taste with no papers. But those parchment liners are pretty.

  16. 17

    Now I am contemplating this very idea for my Smores Cupcakes I am making this week for my sister’s Wedding Shower. They say “camping” theme far better than cupcake wrappers! Perfect timing, thank you…

  17. 18

    Thanks for the great idea! I actually needed a good muffin recipe and a way to gift it pretty. This will work great!

  18. 19

    These look great… I love the look of the bakery style wrappers, but buying them is quite expensive. I’ll definitely give this a try.

  19. 20

    Loving those muffin wrappers! Such a great idea. I always wondered how you all did that.

  20. 21

    I can’t wait to try those muffin wraps! Adds such charm!

  21. 22

    Such a fun way to serve muffins!

  22. 23

    Adorable – I had no idea something like that existed! xoxo Michelle

  23. 24

    YUMMY! These are beautiful pics, too!

  24. 25

    Cheryl – I can’t get over how CUTE those wrappers are – especially tied with the twine. Great, great idea!

  25. 26

    Why am I not smart enough to have thought of this???

  26. 27

    Delicious! I love how they are packaged too! So fun!

  27. 28

    They do look gourmet, that’s for sure! Love jumbo size:)

  28. 29

    They’re so cute. I know what you mean… I can’t seem to replicate bakery muffins no matter how hard I try. It’s strange because most things I prefer the home-baked version.

  29. 30

    Oh my goodness. I love this idea! Gave it a thumbs up and pinned it. Thanks for the yummy inspirations!

  30. 31

    I don’t make nearly enough muffins, these looks absolutely amazing. I am such a big fan of parchment liners, they are so beautifully natural looking.

  31. 32

    I love the parchment paper wrappers! They just scream *home-baked goodness tucked inside*

  32. 33

    What a great way to bake and serve the muffins!

  33. 34

    So I tried these last night. :-) They looked gorgeous until I tried taking them out of the muffin pan… the parchment paper worked a little TOO well!! My muffins fell right out of the paper! It didnt stick at all! :-( They were delicious, but I was sad the paper wrapper didnt stick. What did I do wrong??

  34. 35

    So I made these tonight and tried to tie the twine (mine is cotton, not sisal or jute), and it just slips down since the muffins taper. Any quick tips to get the twine to stay up? I’ll try them again in the morning when they are completely cooled and see if I have any luck!

  35. 36

    So this is such a brilliant idea. I am so thankful you posted this parchment paper liner idea. I’ll never waste money on liners again especially for gifts!
