I can honestly admit that there are few days that go by without me desperately searching for something sweet to eat. A whole cake sometimes feels like a little too much, but the perfect treats to solve this problem are the widely popular cupcakes. I like to make cupcakes with my oven. And there’s one popular question I get for cupcakes baked in oven. How long to bake cupcakes at 350 degrees in the oven? In this post, I like to answer this and share some tips to bake cup cakes in the oven.
It will require 20 minutes to bake cupcakes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit to get fluffy and sweet cupcakes that will have people running to get another one. These deliciously oven baked sweet little desserts will be great for every occasion, from a birthday celebration to a simple craving you want to satisfy.
If you bake cupcakes for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F, you can expect a fluffy and airy dessert to enjoy for the next few days. Nobody wants a dense cupcake, you want to be able to press down a little and see the cake bounce back. This is how you know you have a fluffy cupcake.

If you want to bake cupcakes that people will crave for, make sure to bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
For cupcakes, you can typically go in either direction with minimal consequences, so feel free to change up the temperature if you would like.
Cooking at a lower temperature of around 325 degrees will cause you to wait longer. It is going to take 25 minutes to bake cupcakes at 325 degrees in the oven, but you can definitely expect moist and fluffy cupcakes. Baking cupcakes involves turning a liquid into a solid, so if you don’t wait long enough, you might be looking at cupcake soup instead. So, if you can resist the tantalizing smells that fill your house, cooking at 325 degrees can be a good option for you.
If you want to consider a higher temperature, try using 375 degrees. You won’t have to wait as long to enjoy your treats, but you could end up with drier or even burnt cupcakes as a result. The upside to using 375 degrees is a lower cook time, which could be worth it for some people.

For so many things nowadays, we have to choose between either speed or quality, with this temperature, you can have both. Higher temperatures could cause burning or dryness. Lower temperatures will make you have to wait a bit longer to eat, which could feel unreasonable when your sweet tooth is activated. Cooking at 350 degrees for 20 minutes will give you the best of both worlds, quality and a reasonable time.
Cupcakes are some of the most loved and sought after desserts for good reason, so follow these steps in the easy cupcake recipe to make your own mouth watering little treats.
Go to the store and buy butter, sugar, eggs, flour, oil, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla extract, salt, milk, a cupcake pan, and cupcake liners
Place 2 3/4 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt into a bowl and gently whisk them. In a separate bowl add 1/4 cup of oil, 2 sticks of softened butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 4 eggs and 2 cups of sugar. Mix together and add each egg one at a time. Begin to pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and gradually add 1 cup of milk
Once the ingredients are all together, start to prep your cupcake tray. Place the cupcake liners into the tray. Fill each liner to about halfway.
Set the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake the cupcakes for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
I can completely understand wanting to get cupcakes as quickly as possible, so let’s explore every option that can help to speed up the process.
Thankfully, most of the ingredients you need to make a cake are non-perishable, so you won’t have to worry about them going bad too quickly. So stock up on the cupcake ingredients you need to save time when you have a taste for something sweet. Eggs will go bad first. But still, eggs can last about a month in the fridge.
There’s a reason that you don’t see frozen cupcakes offered in stores, they don’t reheat too well from a frozen state, so scratch that idea. However, cupcakes can be stored in the fridge for about 6 days if they are wrapped and stored properly. So, overall, if you want to save time on making cupcakes, have all the ingredients on hand, and bake a few extra that you know you can enjoy within the week.
You have probably eaten a cupcake and thought to yourself “it doesn’t get any better than this”, but trust me when I say that it does. A lot of making better cupcakes involves the actual baking process.
Try shifting all the dry ingredients so that you can remove more lumps within the batter. By doing this, you will create a softer and lighter texture and remove some of the denseness that is often found in cupcakes.
Another tip you can try to make your dish better is to use different flavors in either the batter or frosting. I know it might be a little scary to divert from the original flavors, but you can end up really enjoying a flavor that you’re typically not used to.
So, I hope you learned everything you need to begin making your very own fluffy, sweet cupcakes.
