To have a perfect cupcake recipe, you just need to bring all the ingredients to room temperature. When you use ingredients straight out of the fridge, they don’t combine as smoothly with the dry and room temperature ingredients. It will result in clumps of ingredients sticking together.
Another great tip is to not over mix the batter. As soon as you can see that the ingredients are well-blended, then it is time for you to stop mixing. Over-mixing can deflate the mix. You want air bubbles to have a dome shape on the top of a cupcake. This will help your cupcakes, but is true of all cake batter.
In this recipe, you can substitute orange zest for grapefruit zest to add a vivid citrusy flavor. Top these lovely orange cupcakes with a flavored buttercream frosting.
