3. Gather Your Ingredients

Gather the Ingredients for 6 Tips for Making the Best Cupcakes

To save yourself a lot of time, after reading the recipe go ahead, and get your ingredients together. Then you can begin measuring out and mixing your ingredients.

Ingredients you will need: Self-Rising Flour, Butter, Sugar, Eggs, Vanilla Extract, Milk, Sour Cream, Peanut Butter (Only If you are making a Peanut Butter Cake).

Oh, and if your recipe calls for butter at room temperature, go ahead and lay it out for about 30 minutes along with the eggs. This will help the eggs and butter mix up nicely with your other ingredients.

4. Don’t Overmix or Undermix

Don't Overmix or Undermix

This is a mistake that a lot of bakers make. If you overmix your cupcake batter it will make them tough and crumbly. Undermixing will make them sink in the middle. Mix just until all the ingredients are incorporated, and your batter is not lumpy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

5. Choose the Right Pan

Choose The Right Pan for  6 Tips for Making the Best Cupcakes

Always use the right baking pan size. If you use a pan that is too big, the batter will spread out too far, creating a dense cupcake with little or no filling.

If you use a pan that is too small, your cupcake batter will overflow while baking, and it will be flat on top. When using cupcakes pans, always fill each cavity no more than 2/3 full, otherwise, your baked batter will spill over the edges. ๐Ÿ˜–

6. Don’t Overbake

Overbaked Cupcakes is Part of  6 Tips for Making the Best Cupcakes

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. or whatever the recipe calls for. If the recipe states to cook 15-20 minutes, start off with the lower time and increase it in 5-minute intervals.

Overcooking will dry your cupcakes out and make them crumbly. Undercooking them will cause them to sink in the middle. ๐Ÿ˜
