How to Convert The Baking Time of a Cake to Cupcakes


Cake mixes and recipes should not leave you feeling boxed in to always making a cake. You can turn a cake batter into many forms, including cupcakes. The secret to getting perfect cupcakes from a cake recipe is understanding exactly how to modify the cooking process for the variation in size from a full-sized cake form to a cupcake pan.

Things You'll Need

  • Paper cupcake liners
  • Cupcake pan
  • Toothpicks
  • Prepare the cake batter according to the recipe directions. Line cupcake tins with paper liners. Grease and flour the tin if you do not have liners available. A traditional cake recipe will prepare just over two dozen cupcakes.

  • Fill each cupcake cup 3/4-full of batter. Leave 1/4 of the liner empty to allow room for the cupcake to rise and expand in the cup.

  • Preheat your oven to the temperature specified by the cake recipe. Check the cupcakes at 1/3 of the time required for the cake. Insert a toothpick into the center of a cupcake. A clean toothpick indicates that your cupcakes are ready. It may take as much as half the baking time specified in the cake recipe. Most cupcakes will bake within 20 minutes.
