DS wanted to make some "little cakes" in some silicon moulds which are probably a bit more than cupcake-size.
I baked for around 17 minutes on 200c until they were golden (more toward browny gold) on top. Managed to get them out of the moulds with no problem (my main fear) but they're not cooked in the middle. Argh.
How do I avoid this in future? I can't see how I could leave them in the oven for longer without them burning on top.
mimsy, what oven do you have, gas, electric, fan assisted? if its fan assisted you need to lower temp to 160,or 180 if not; or gas 4 and always check, easiest way us pressing the top (lightly) and if cooked they sprung back, or stick the knife in..
200 is too high for cupcakes. I have a fan assisted and put it on max 175 for cupcakes otherwise they brown too much on top. If your oven always overcooks things if the recipe says 200 fan assisted then turn it down at least 10 degrees and see how things go
