can most cupcake recipes be poured into a cake pan and used as cake recipe or is there something special about the recipe or something that needs to be changed. i want this book that has all cupcake recipes, but i think i would only want it if the recipes could also be for cake. like i said, kind of a beginners question.

yes, you can use a cupcake recipe as a cake recipe. You will just bake it a little longer than the cupcake time.

Recipes for cupcakes tend to be smaller, making about a dozen cupcakes. That won't make much of a cake.

Most times yes, however, vegan recipes don't tend to work well as cakes - I've noticed, they just don't rise as high or sink in the center.

The recipe link for cc thread is in my signature line.
