I’d like to see cupcake sizes added to the “Baking and Serving Guide.” What is the correct amount of batter to use in different sizes of cupcake liners?

Tara - from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Thank you for pointing out we didn’t include cupcakes in our “Baking and Serving Guide.” For standard cupcakes, you use 1/4 to 1/3 cup batter, for mini cupcakes, use 1 heaping tablespoon batter, for jumbo cupcakes, use 1/2 to 2/3 cup batter. We will be adding this information to our website shortly.
