To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

2-Tbsp Anytime Freezer Tray


  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • tablespoons sugar
  • 1 pinch of kosher salt
  • teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons frozen blueberries or chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Coat the cups of an Anytime Freezer Tray (2-Tbsp) with cooking spray and set aside. Make sure you grease the trays well so the muffins stay intact!
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, vanilla, milk, and butter or oil until a smooth batter is formed.
  3. Fold in the blueberries or chocolate chips, then evenly split the batter into the Anytime Freezer Tray (2-Tbsp) up to the half-fill line (roughly 1 tablespoon of batter). Be careful not to overfill!
  4. Transfer 1 tray to the microwave to the microwave and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the muffins are fully cooked. To test, insert a toothpick into the center of the muffin and check that it comes out dry. Repeat with any remaining batter, if needed.
  5. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before popping muffins out of the trays. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Use an Anytime Freezer Tray (1/2 Cup) to cook larger muffins, making sure to coat the cups with cooking spray. Double the cooking time for larger muffins.
  • Substitute blueberries for sliced bananas, diced peaches, or raspberries.
  • Try mini chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, or sugar-free baking chips.
  • Use our Banana Bread or Zucchini Bread batter to make mini muffins in the Freezer Trays.

Recipe notes

  • Freeze for later! Cover the portioned batter with the lids and freeze for up to 6 months. You may cook from frozen or thawed.
  • Why frozen blueberries? Not only are frozen blueberries cheaper, but they also tend to hold less moisture than fresh berries which helps them keep their shape better when cooked.
  • Time Saver: Use store-bought mix for muffins of vanilla cake mix. Prepare the batter to package directions and proceed with Step 2.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
