Do your cupcakes spread out all over top of the pan and don’t dome? Are they dry?
Here is how to make the perfect, domed, moist cupcake.
- Don’t over mix. Barely mix enough to incorporate the ingredients. Most boxes ask you to mix on medium for 2-3 minutes. This is over mixing the ingredients.
- Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees and bake for 5 min. After 5 minutes, reduce the heat to 350 for the remainder of the time.
- Don’t over bake. If you use the method above, reduce over all time by 2-3 min, and check often. You can always bake something more, but can’t bake something less.
- Don’t want the cupcake to stick to the wrapper? After 2 min, or as fast as you can, remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack. The tin traps in steam and makes your cupcakes stick.
