I usually bake mine at 350 for 20 min. How long do you bake them for at 325? Does it make a difference in the texture?

I have found that baking cakes at a lower temp is a good idea, but have not had the same results with cupcakes. They seem to respond better at higher temps for shorter times.

Leah is right. I bake my cakes at 325 and they are nice and moist. My cupcakes, I start baking at 400 for 5 minutes and then I drop to 350. I read here on CC about that and really works great! Nice rounded tops! icon_smile.gif

Thank you both! So, if I pre-heat my oven on 400 (I've never done this before) bake for 5 min., reduce temp. to 350 and bake for 15 more mins. (20 mins. total bake time) or is the bake time 25 mins. total?

I think that will depend on your oven and batter type. First time, I would just test and see how long it takes. Also, try doing a search here to make sure you drop to 350 and not 325. I'm having a blank here and I'm not quite sure. thumbs_up.gif

Definitely 350, not 325.

Also I believe it depends on your oven so be prepared to make another batch if you don't like the results. I have an electric oven so I turn it down as soon as I put the cupcakes in. Electric oven will take longer to cool down than gas. At least I believe it does. If anybody else has experience with both kinds of ovens, I would love to know if this is true.

My is electric and I lower the temp after 5 minutes, but don't forget, not all electric ovens are made the same. I think the important thing is to test the first time for the oven you have. icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the post. I real couldn't remember the correct temp thumbs_up.gif
