If I take a cake recipe and convert it to cupcakes how should I adjust the baking time?

"until they're done". Seriously. I haven't used a timer in years. When I smell 'em, they're done.

Cupcakes, in general, bake in anywhwere from 10 to 20 minutes, so if you need a timer, I'd suggest you set it for 15 minutes, then check them. If they're done, then you know it takes 15 minutes. If they're not done, leave 'em in for a while longer until they are.

And when you press them lightly on the top your finger should not leave a little dent. They should spring back.

i bake at the same temp the recipe calls for. Anywhere from 325-350. Most of my recipes call for 350.

Different people do different things, but in general, I bake at a lower temp initially for a cake because I want the top to be flatter, and I do the reverse for cupcakes because I want the nice dome shape. So while I bake at 325 for cakes and then increase later, I do 350 or even 375 for cupcakes initially and then turn it down after a few minutes to make it have a pretty rounded top. But same as Indydebi just said, I wait till I smell 'em ... don't so much go by baking times. (I don't do cupcakes often enough to know the times by heart for each different recipe with different baking temps icon_wink.gif.
