How to make a basic cupcake using a mix
Make a batch of cupcakes from any of our cake recipes (for a layer cake or 13x9-inch cake) or cake mixes. You'll get about 24 to 36 cupcakes.
Line medium muffin cups, 2 1/2x1 1/4 inches, with paper baking cups. Look for cups in festive colors and special designs at your supermarket, party store or paper warehouse.
Fill each cup about half full with batter. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
If you have only one 12-cup muffin pan, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Then bake the rest of the batter in the cooled muffin pan, adding 1 or 2 minutes to the bake time.
