Most cupcake recipes can be made into mini cupcakes. Mini cupcake pans hold roughly 1/3 of the amount of regular cupcake pans, so if you have a recipe that yields 12 full sized cupcakes, you'll get 36 minis from the same amount of batter.
Then, can I use any cake recipe to make cupcakes?
Bake the cupcakes at the same temperature called for in the cake recipe, but reduce the baking time by one-third to one-half (cupcakes usually bake for 15-20 minutes). Check doneness by inserting a wooden toothpick into the center of the cupcake. If the toothpick comes out clean, the cupcakes are done.
How many cupcakes does one cake box make?
There are also pans that have mini, large and jumbo muffin cups. Mini muffin pans make 24 cupcakes while large and jumbo pans make six cupcakes each. If you only have one muffin pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch.
How many mini cupcakes can you make from a cake mix?
One box of Betty Crocker cake mix will make about 60 mini cupcakes. Fill the cupcake pan about 1/2 to 2/3 full. Easiest way - fill a food storage bag with the batter, clip a corner and squeeze batter into cups. If you only have one pan, refrigerate the batter inbetween bakes.
