I made their caramel apple recipe tonight and it did not turn out! I'm in the middle of trying again. I wanted to halve the recipe but now I'm just doing a full recipe.

Here's my question-the recipe says it makes 18 cupcakes, but I've already scooped 12 and I have a ton more batter. I use a standard sized ice cream scoop just like they do. I followed the recipe to a T.

This has happened before with other recipes (not just GC recipes).

Any ideas?

Well, I remade this recipe and will NOT use it again. As good as the batter tastes, they are really temperamental. I much much prefer the recipe I normally use and wish I had used that one instead!

Hi Osgirl, What other problems did you have with the cupcakes? And what recipe do you usually use? Thanks.

I just tried the Gingerbread cupcakes, recipe and found them to be a little dry and way too much ginger in the recipe. Anyone else try this recipe?

I'm not surprised..With the way they just throw ingredients into the bowls on TV and hope it turns out..I mean Really!!

They didn't rise like I like them to. The tops felt gooey yet the inside was baked through. They actually tasted really good, and the swirl of frosting covered up the sunken-ness.

The recipe that I normally use I posted in the cupcake recipe section. I take Sprinkles' strawberry cupcake recipe and substitute the strawberry for apple, add 1 tsp cinnamon, and use some brown sugar instead of a full cup of white sugar. I LOVE this recipe.

I'm going to try the gingerbread cupcakes soon.

I couldnt find this recipe you are speaking of. Is it in the recipe forum or in this cupcake forum? Thanks!

Anyone who knows the answer is encouraged to answer! icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif

It's from their book. I think it's on the internet as well. I'll check...
