AI seem to be having an awful time finding a good chocolate cake or cupcake recipe. (They just don't seem to have enough for me). I tried so many lately, maybe I'm just picky. So... today I tried Lizzy's cupcakes, although they were good and moist, but very light and airy. After rereading the directions I read stir in the ingredients, I used the mixer. Do you think that could be why they are airy?

I have 200 cupcakes this weekend, and I just can't find a recipe that I'm happy with. Thank you, Lori

I think that it is a possibility - I always notice a difference in my cakes (I am a bit slack and normally use the same recipe with flavour variations) when I use the beaters to mix them as opposed to mixing them with the spatula. If you are wanting to know whether that was your problem just reduce your recipe to a smaller size so you are not wasting to many ingredients and try it hand mixed - then you will know for sure if you are happy with the recipe done that way.

AThank you, maybe I'll try making half the recipe tomorrow. Next week is my husbands birthday and I asked him what he wanted, he said more chocolate cupcakes (which was sarcasm) lol.
