I've heard some refridgerating it overnight then pouring in pan and letting it get room temp to bake. Happy Grandma times!!!!!!!! Hope she has a speedy and safe delivery.

Cover it tightly (like in a Tupperware) and freeze it. Thaw in the fridge and bake as normal. I've had fine results freezing batter for a day or two.

Good luck to your daughter and congrats, Grandma!

All you can do is refrigerate and then take out and let sit to room temp and try baking....good luck!

What a story later on in life - "did you know that I was in the middle of................when you decided to come into this world"? Congrats on the new arrival. Hope all are well and relaxing at home.

Thanks for the advice. You never know when an emergency may come up.

Everyone, my daughter had a baby boy who is 4 weeks premature and he's perfect - plump and very aware and they can come home in a couple of days. Usually baby has to stay in the hospital a week or so to grow more. What's better yet I had cupcakes to take to the hospital for all to enjoy. I am so grateful to all who responded. Thank you! I do have a quick question - I thawed the cupcakes I made from another batter a few days ago; when I tasted a couple they didn't have as much flavor as they always do. They tasted bland. It's my favorite chocolate cake recipe. I measured everything correctly so I have no idea what's going wrong. They were in freezer a couple of days only.
