I am making red velvet cupcakes for the first time tonite. I will be using the Cakeman Ravens recipe. Does anyone know how many cupcakes it yields?
Also, do the cupcakes sink in the middle or any problems I should be concerned about. And how much does it rise? Should I do the usual 2/3 full or higher?

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

But...when I tried it with cupcakes they were dry. icon_sad.gif
I wouldn't suggest filling them past 2/3 full, and the next time I make them I will be putting a filling inside.
I can't remember how many this made-I think 24.
Good luck!

My rule of thumb is if a recipe says it yields 2X 8" or 9" round layers, then you should get 24 cupcakes out of it. Most home recipes have been adapted to this standard because that's the most common cake pan size in the home kitchen.

I've read that Martha Stewart's recipe is better then Caveman's, the recipe is on her website.

Good luck!

Cakeman's cake, with modifidations, is my favorite. I haven't done it in cupcakes, but I would use Reynold's or quality greaseproof liners. I slightly lower the oil in the cake, so the cupcakes may be too moist if the recipe is followed exactly. I would lower the oil by 1/4 cup. I always bake one cupcake, adjust... until I get it perfect... then bake the batch. I then note all of my changes and which oven I used on the recipe.
