When I use the Duncan Hines cake mix for cupcakes about 50% of the time the cupcakes seperate from the wrappers, I do add more oil to the recipe- it used to be 1 1/2 cups then I lowerd it to 1 cup but still have the problem, I like the flavor for certain cupcakes but think it is too dry without adding the extra oil, does anyone have any suggestions?
I use DH mixes and that has only happened to me one time. It was when I covered the warm cupcakes and the cupcakes kind of steamed up the container. Now I never cover them until they are cool.
Hmmm no I use DH and it never separates....
DH is the only cake mix that I use and I have'nt had that problem before. When you say "1 1/2 cups of oil...." how many boxes are you using?
this happened to me once, when i used the foiled-lined wrappers. i think your adding way too much oil
I add extra oil to make them moist, when I followed the recipe they were too dry I started with 1 1/2 cups per box then lowerd it to 1 cup but still have the problem at times, this has never happend with betty crocker
You must be using wayyyyy too much oil. For yellow I use 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon and they are very moist. For chocolate I use 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon. Even 1 cup is wayyyy too much! HTH!
The oil amount looked waaayyyy heavy to me too. If they are dry maybe they are being over baked. Cupcakes can move from perfect to overdone in the blink of an eye.
i agree....i cook all my cakes on cupcakes on 325 and i dont have no problems with them drying out
I am not looking at the box right now but isnt it usually 1 1/3 cups water (the water amount slightly varies with the cake flavor) and 1/3 cup oil?
