I want to convert an orange cupcake recipe to two 8" or 9" layer cakes. The recipe makes 24 cupcakes, so I think the volume will be fine. What I'm wondering about is the amount of liquid, specifically, milk, in the original recipe.
The recipe calls for 1.5 cups of milk, which is a little more than for a cake -- the cake ratio seems to be more around .5 to 1 cup for the amount of flour, which is 3 cups AP. The recipe also takes 4 eggs and 14T butter.
Here's a link to the recipe., which is posted on Leite's:
It may just be a matter of baking the cake a little longer, possibly at a lower temp, but any suggestions are appreciated.
By the way, this is a very good cupcake recipe as is, I just want to make it as a birthday cake.
