The most common question we get is how to fill cupcake liners evenly so that the cupcakes bake evenly without adding a lot of extra time to the baking process. Although this certainly does not just apply to our BakeBright baking cups, those are the ones we have experience baking in because we use them exclusively. Don’t use those silly cupcake pan fillers, piping bags, or even measuring cups. There are so many gadgets out there that supposed help this problem. This method is simple, easy, and fast. In addition to the usual (mixer, batter, and cupcake liners), we use a rubber spatula that has a flat side and a medium OXO cookie scoop. Ready to hear how to fill cupcake liners evenly? Let go!
How To Fill Cupcake Liners Evenly Steps
First, fill the cookie scoop completely and run the rubber spatula over the top to scrape off any extra batter giving it a flat top. This gives constantly the exact same amount of batter each time, never fails.
From there, squeeze the handle of the scooper and drop the batter into the cupcake liner and I do this twice with the medium scoop.
This particular scoop works better with two scoops than the batter in one large scoop because it is too much batter. You can experiment with your own and find the perfect fit for you. You may like a little more batter than we do. That’s it! It’s not difficult or any more time consuming than trying to measure or wipe out the spoon/scoop to make sure all the batter gets out. This cookie scoop has a mechanism inside of it that scrapes the scoop for you.
We have found this to be the easiest and most effective way to fill the pans for uniformly sized cupcakes. The key here is to scrape the top with the spatula since not doing so could allow inconstant amounts of batter into the cupcake liner depending on how much is sitting on the scoop once you remove it from the batter.
It sounds simple but it’s the most common question we get regarding our liners and the result once the cupcakes are baked in them. We care about the quality AND look of your cupcakes.
