How can I bake flat cupcakes?

justangelinaxo | Apr 23, 2013 05:06 AM

I always bake either too short or too domed cupcakes! (And the domed cupcakes don't rise on the edges) My baking powder and soda's just fine, I did the water experiment and it fizzled so its usable. I want cupcakes that will rise evenly on the surface without being undercooked or burnt. I don't mind a few cracks, I can easily cover that up. I heard that with cake, rap the pan a few times before sending it into the oven but I'm not sure if that will work with cupcakes, too! I'm so frustrated, I see Laura Vitale and Stephanie from Joy Of Baking take their pans out with perfect flat and rised cupcakes and they don't do anything before sending their pans into the oven. Any tips? Thanks a ton xo
