What ingredient makes a cupcake moist?

You can use 1/2 cup of sour cream (sounds weird, right) or yogurt to add moisture. Or, you can do what I do, and add a box of pudding mix.

How do I make my cupcakes fluffier?

Now, this is a argued point here. Some people/chefs say that you should mix the batter longer, creating bubbles. The bubbles make the cake airy and fluffy. This is what I prefer.

However, some day you should not over mix your batter. That will get rid of the air bubbles that make cakes and cupcakes fluffier. Try mixing on a lower speed.


Try both and see what you think.

How full should I fill cupcake liners?

Use 1/4 cup of batter, or fill 2/3 to 3/4 of the way full. If you fill the liner to the top, the cupcake will rise over and overflow the cups, creating a mess. Plus, they don’t look as pretty. They look like jacked up mushrooms.
