Cupcake Baking Mistakes and How to Fix Them

Use the Wrong Kind of Flour

Using the wrong kind of flour without any proper information can degrade your dough’s consistency. These could lead to the final preparation of your cupcake to be extremely dry and crumby.

Over and Undermixing the Batter

One of the most common mistakes that happen unknowingly while making cupcakes is over and under mixing of batter. The overmixing leads to the batter becoming extremely dense.

Mis-Measuring Ingredients

In baking, the incorrect measurements of materials added to the batter can destroy the end result. As a beginner, it’s always a common mistake everyone makes.

Underbaking or Overbaking Cupcakes

That’s the most common yet crucial issue that happens a lot. Usually, the main reason for this, apart from others, is incorrect baking time. Either the cupcakes are baked for a longer period or taken out quite early.

You use Butter and Chilled Eggs

Adding cold materials like butter and chilled eggs should be done in the right way. Directly putting a spoonful of cold butter from block or chilled eggs can harm your batter’s consistency.
