Can I bake cupcakes in a muffin tin?

All this talk about cupcakes has prompted a question: do I need to change the recipe at all to bake cupcakes in a muffin tin?

Sometimes, a girl just needs something a little bigger than a cupcake!

    Bake your little heart out.

    (That's a 'yes'.)

      It's like Babette says, you're good to go. I was trying to figure out what else one would use to bake cupcakes; around our house the muffin tin *is* the cupcake pan. Incidentally, Cook's Illustrated just did a rating of these pans and they liked the Wilton one the best, partially because it has handles on the sides. Brilliant, no? You can find them at Michaels, or just about any other craft store that carries cake decorating supplies. The Ecko Bakers Secret came in a close second (and I can vouch for it, it's what we use and it works brilliantly), and can be found at darn near any grocery store.

      1. What else, pray tell, would you use???
