that's basically my question. I have a cake to do on Friday, and I know I'll have some batter left over. Can I keep left over batter in the fridge for a day or so and do some cupcakes with it later? Has anyone tried to do that before or does it change the taste and texture? Thanks in advance.
Yes, you can.
Cake mixes and most scratch bakers use double acting baking powder. What this means is that the baking powder is 1st activated when liquid is added, with a 2nd activation when heat is applied (during baking).
As a result, cake batter can sit without losing its ability to rise properly; it can also be refrigerated and/or frozen without losing its ability to rise properly when baked.
