Why do my cupcakes "cave" in?

The cupcakes look puffy and crowned well after I remove them from the oven, but they as they cool down, the middle part "caves" in... did I not mix the batter enough? Did I bake long enough?

Re: Why do my cupcakes "cave" in?

  • I think that is caused by either not being baked long enough, or you have too much baking powder.  I know it is so frustrating when you think they're going to be so pretty and round, then they collapse. :-(

    Ah, I know- so frustrating! I don't think I baked them long enough... (The recipe uses baking soda, not powder)....

  • I'd thought the same thing - they weren't baked long enough.

    Not the end of the world... if they've caved in, I usually will just fill the dip with frosting. Yes  Mmmm, frosting!
