Frequently Asked Questions
What Makes a Cupcake Fluffy?
Many things can make a cupcake fluffy, such as:
• The ingredients that go into the cake.
• The type of flour used in the cake.
• The amount of sugar used in the cake.
• The type of baking powder or baking soda.
• The temperature at which it is baked.
Are Cupcakes Better With Oil or Butter?
In general, it is recommended to use butter as it makes the cake more tender and flavorful. However, oil can be used instead if you are looking for a healthier option.
There are many benefits of using oil like:
• It keeps the cake moist.
• It prevents the sugar from crystallizing in large lumps.
• It helps make the cake rise up high and fluffy.
Why Are My Cupcakes Dry and Crumbly?
The first thing that comes to mind is flour. Flour can be dry if it has been over-mixed or if you have added too much water, resulting in a crumbly texture.
If your cupcakes are still a little moist, the issue may be due to overmixing and/or using too much baking powder.
Why Is My Cupcake Flat?
Flat cupcakes are caused by several factors, including temperature and humidity. Cupcakes should be stored in an airtight container or tightly wrapped with foil or plastic to prevent them from drying out.
Other causes of flat cupcakes include not using the correct baking time, too much baking powder, not having enough flour, overmixing the batter, and undercooking.
Cupcakes left on the counter for too long may become soggy as they absorb moisture from the air. If you notice your cupcake is soggy after leaving it on the counter for a few hours before frosting it, it has likely absorbed too much moisture from the air.
