Redoing an old recipe using Reverse Creaming Method - spilled over

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have a very basic vanilla cake recipe that use to work for me all the time and I loved it. But for some reason I think it may have gotten tweaked from me rewriting it and saving it in various places in my excel recipe spreadsheet.  I tried to lighten up a recipe the recipe by using the reverse creaming method with it. And I did half cake flour half ap flour.  The batter tasted wonderful, was pretty thick.  But when I baked it it domed perfectly at first, then spread up over the top of the edges a little.  I scooped the batter with my cupcake (ice cream) scoop 2/3 of the way as always.  I ended up having to trim the edges to get even sides after I removed them from the pan. And the end result is a very moist fluffy cupcake, a little dark on the bottom but the top separates away from the rest of the cake and is a little crusty.  Help!

Here's the recipe. I added a few tablespoons of instant coffee granules (per another recipe) the last 30 seconds of reverse creaming method to make a coffee speckled vanilla cupcake. 

 

2 cups sugar

3 cups flour

4 eggs
1 tbspn vanilla
1 tbspn bk pwdr
1 cup milk
1 cup butter

You're missing salt, about a teaspoon. 

however the recipe looks ok, and reverse creaming normally does work fine with a mix like this.

Yes the batter is thicker.  It may be better cooked low & slow.   I prefer to use this recipe with cakes, not cupcakes.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something
