You can pre-make your weekly breakfast very easily by freezing smoothie cubes. On Sunday night, make a large batch of smoothie mixture. Pour it in your muffin pan and freeze. When you are ready for a smoothie just take out a frozen dome. Pop it in the blender and you are good to go. A hole in the bottom of the pan definitely won't help you here, but you won't believe where it will!

Another great use for the muffin pan is as a stationary organizer. Use the pan to organize your desk. You now have little pockets for drawing pens, paper clips, safety pins, and more. Put plastic cups into each hole and you'll have pen and pencil holders too. There are so many endless options with this baking tray. But the best is yet to come. You wouldn't dream of using a muffin pan to cook eggs.

Feeding a big family isn't exactly easy. But it can be done with a muffin pan with this easy kitchen hack. You can make a dozen hard-boiled eggs all at once with a muffin pan. Place an egg in each muffin hole. Prick a tiny hole at the top of each egg and bake. You will be able to serve breakfast quickly. But those aren't the only holes you'll be poking, you'll still need holes for the pan.

If you have young children then you know about the crayon dilemma. Children will use crayons until they are left with tiny, unusable little crayon nubs, but you can salvage these broken pieces. Collect similar crayon colors and place them in one muffin hole. Next, melt these in the oven and when they are done you will be left with giant crayons. These are great for toddlers. Now, let's ditch the oven baking for the freezer.

When you find yourself sweating from the excessive heat of summer, don't despair. Slice up a lemon and place a single slice in each muffin hole. Next, fill the holes up with water. Put the pan in the freezer and in several hours you will have giant lemon-flavored ice cubes. These are perfect for jugs of water. The large size will cool down your drink fast. But that's not the only drink dilemma your muffin pan can fix.
