From pound cake to cupcake?

CandiceDanielle | Mar 16, 2012 08:31 AM

Hi all,

I have been trying to do some research about turning a pound cake into a cupcake but have come up empty handed and could use some help or baking tips.

Here's what I am trying to do:

First, I know that I could just easily put the poundcake batter into the cupcake liner. I have tried this with mini cupcakes and it's okay since the cupcake is so small.

But I want to go big and use a standard cupcake liner but I'm afraid that will be too much and too heavy; to have that much of poundcake in a standard cupcake baking cup. I feel that would be a lot to take in as a cupcake and might clash with a cream cheese icing I'd like to use with it.

What I would like to do is maybe lighten up the cake so that it's not so heavy and achieves the texture, lightness, fluffiness and moistness of that of a standard yellow cupcake.

And while I can just use a different recipe, the recipe I have for the poundcake I love because it has a hint of a lemon/lime taste and I would like to keep that flavor going on in the cupcake to accompany the icing.

With all that said, any suggestions? :)
