It would help if you would let us know what recipe you are using.

Everyone told me too preheat the oven to 400, then cut down to 350 either right after you put the cupcakes in or about 10 minutes after, I tried this and it WORKS! My cupcakes look much better. Look at the one in my pictures, I did that after not being able to keep my cupcakes from sinking. They don't have a dome but they rose much better and didn't fall at all! Oh, they bake for about 20 minutes I think? I don't remember! HTH!

Are you from the US and this is the oven temp for our ovens? 175 is barely warm. I don't know if that was a typo, but if you really meant 175 that is waaaay toooooo looooow.

At least 350 degrees. And then ditto what JaeRogriguez said.

Linda I'm presuming that with 175 you mean cellicus because you either live in Canada or England or Australia. 175 cellicus would be 350 ferinheit in the US. Next time before you take the cupcakes out do the tooth pick test and see if they are done. If they are still sinking then maybe you are overbeating your batter. Don't give up...keep trying, you'll get it. icon_smile.gif

No I live in the US. I got confused because the OP didn't mention Fahrenheit or Celsius. Thanks for clearing it up. She must be talking Celsius then.

Preheat the oven 50 degrees higher than your recipe calls for. Bake your cupcakes at the higher temp for 5 minutes, then turn it down for the rest of the time. You'll get a nice dome. This works for muffins too.
