A special baking pan with six or 12 cup-shaped depressions that hold the muffin batter. Each standard muffin cup is about 2½ inches in diameter. There are also giant muffin pans with 3¼-inch cups, miniature muffin pans (gem pans) in which the diameter of each indentation is 1¼ to 2 inches, and muffin-top pans, which are about 4 inches in diameter and only ½ inch deep.
