Does anyone have a recipe for a great tasting, moist chocolate cupcake that domes? I know that chocolate cupcakes generally bake up flat, but I'd love to find one that domes up - love the way that looks. Thanks in advance.
Check out the cupcakes in the second last post, nice and domed... They are Rose Levy Beranbaum's German Chocolate Cake.
There is also a theory that leaving the batter for around 20 mins in the cups before baking helps to make a domed cupcake.
I use the killer chocolate cake recipe on here and it bakes up nicely as cupcakes. They dome perfectly.
A trick to get a nice dome though, is to preheat the oven to 400. Then when you put the cupcakes in, lower the temp to 350.
