Mise en Place is a French term that basically means to have everything in place prior to cooking or baking. Using this technique will make it easier and quicker for you to cook or bake. Everything has been prepped and measured and is ready to be added. Therefore, you will not have to stop and measure each ingredient or go to your pantry or fridge and get it. Also, it will ensure that you have all the ingredients, prior to cooking or baking. This is a Mise en Place for Grandma Helenâ€™s Pumpkin Bread and it may be hard to see but the butter and the sugar are already in the mixing bowl. Two pans are displayed, because the mixture can be used to make bread and/or muffins. The only thing that is not displayed is muffin cups and non-stick cooking spray. However, if you do not have these items, use the wrapper from your butter. This will only work if your butter was opened at room temperature. When unwrapping and butter has been placed into the bowl, you will notice that there is butter that sticks to the wrapper. Take the wrapper and smear around the inside of your pan.
