Tips and Tricks
There are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind when making these cupcakes.
Be Careful Not to Overmix
When combining the wet and dry ingredients, it’s important not to overmix. Overmixing can result in tough cupcakes, which nobody wants. So be sure to mix just until all of the ingredients are combined.
It’s also important not to overbake the cupcakes. This can result in dry cupcakes, which nobody wants either. To avoid this, check the cupcakes at the 18-minute mark and if a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, they are done baking.
