cupcake recipes

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have noticed on the recipe section of CC that many people ask if a recipe would be good for cupcakes. I have always used my cake recipes for cakes and cupcakes, so I guess my question would be why wouldn't a cake recipe be good for cupcakes?

I'd like to know also, if the recipe needs adjusting that may be why I have trouble with the bottoms getting to dark.

Don't know the answer about cakes/cupcakes recipe but watched Sharon Zambito's dvd on basics and she puts a cookie sheet over coils(I just put on lowest rack) to diffuse the heat so it reduces chances of burned bottoms. Tried it with cakes this weekend and works great.

Thanks I'll give that a shot.

darker bottoms: putting sheet on lower rack under will help, the type of liners will affect (metalic liners bake dark )

as for the recipe, i use the same for cake and cupcake, but a couple of things can make some difference ...
cupcakes bake at a higher temp usually 375 and cakes 350
usually cupcake recipes have less sugar
sometimes less levening (baking soda or powder)

example: a muffin has less sugar and usually has a higher dome, too much suagr will cause a cupcake to be flat and over flow.
