Best Kept Secret Tips to Bake the Perfect Cupcake: Step 4

4 Bake the Perfect Cupcake: Step 4

4. Use a cookie scoop to fill the cupcake liners – don’t eyeball it.

There’s nothing worse than pulling out a tray of freshly cooked cupcakes out of the oven and discovering they all lie in one of two categories: either overcooked or practically raw inside.

The most easiest way to ensure a nice uniform baking time is to make sure you are putting the exact same amount of batter into each cupcake liner. This is so much more important with cupcakes than with cakes because they’re so much smaller – just a few tablespoons’ difference between two 8″ cake pans will not make a huge difference, but if two cupcakes are off by the same amount then they can come out so very different.

The very best way to ensure even batter distribution is to use a

large scoop for standard-sized cupcakes and a

small cookie scoop for minis.

Fill the liners about 2/3 of the way for the best results.

I’m Julie. This is where my love of cupcakes, digital photography as well as writing comes to life! How did this recipe thing all begin? In November of 2012, I made the decision that I needed to keep a log of my recipes, so I started a simple recipe blog. This beautiful collection of cupcakes and cafe delights continues to grow every week and I can’t wait to see where it is 5 years down the road. My grandma encouraged all of my baking. At family gatherings with well over 250 individuals the midst of absolutely no where, she consistently was able to create perfect cherry cobblers along with other goodies for dessert over the campfire. It seemed to be like magic for me.
