hi

i do my mini cupcakes on about 170 degress C (340 deg F) and watch them like a hawk. i think my lot today took around 15 minutes. But i may not be much help as my oven is really temperamental

Like melave, I set my oven at about 335 degrees and watch carefully. Ten minutes usually does the trick.

Your oven may have hot spots, so some cupcakes are cooking faster than others. May need to spin the pan around halfway thru.

I toothpick test my cupcakes when they still look a little damp on top. Honestly, they do not LOOK like they could possibly be done, but they are!

I bake at 325 degrees for 12-15 minutes and they're done. Get an oven thermometer and check how regular your oven isicon_smile.gif These little guys can over bake in a heartbeat.

i bake at 325 and they are done in less than 10 minutes. But i dont' use a timer, so i'm just guessing. I can look at 'em and tell when they're done.

Don't stick them all in the oven at the same time. Fill up 3 or 4 cups and do a trial bake to see how long they need. Once you fill up the pan, you may need to add 30 seconds to a minute to your cooktime, but then again, you may not, so be sure to test early.

Increase your oven temperature. If they cook slowly at a low temp, they won't puff up. Also, don't overfill the cups. Like I recommended in my last post, do a few experimental cupcakes before filling - and possibly ruining - an entire panful.

Thanks! thumbs_up.gif
I've been baking them at 350 so maybe I'll try at a higher temp and then lower to 350 after I put them in.
