  1. Hi maria,

    In this recipe, please clarify me one sentence “To ensure even baking, half fill any empty cups with water”.Do we need to put an extra cup with water half filled with water along with the cup cakes tins?

    Your suggestions would be helpful.


    • Hi Rushi

      If you are using a 12 hole cupcake/muffin tin for baking this recipe & if your batter is enough for making only 10 cupcakes, you have to fill the other 2 empty muffin holes with water, only half way though.

      If you have enough batter to make 12 cupcakes then you dont have to do this.

      Hope its clear now….

      Happy baking :)
