basic cupcake recipe

This is a basic recipe you can use and modify for every kind of cupcakes. If you want chocolate cupcakes just add some cocoa powder. If you want to add nuts, fruits or chocolate sprinkles this works as well just make sure to adjust the amount of milk depending if you are adding dry or wet ingredients.

If you want to bake a chocolate cupcake you can add 2-3 tablespoon of cocoa powder to the flour and 50ml milk.

For baking cupcakes I always use a muffin pan*. Even if I use cupcake liners*, the cupcakes keep a nicer shape, this way. To fill in the dough I almost always use a batter dispenser tip* in a piping bag*. This is the easiest way to distribute the dough evenly without scooping around with spoons. Bake the cupcakes 10-15min with top and bottom heat at 180°C. I never use the convection setting for cupcakes as it often makes them rise unevenly.
