I have tried baking RHC Chocolate Butter Cupcakes twice already and on both times, the cupcake liners always peel off the cupcakes. I let the cupcakes cool enough to handle and allow it to cool on cooling racks. I am beginning to speculate that it may be a recipe issue because I never have any problem with the liners literally falling off the cupcakes as it cools. I do not think it is condensation causing the problem because I take it out from the pans almost immediately. However, I notice that this is an oilier recipe evidenced by the greasy or wet appearance of the paper liners. I also do not think it is an issue of liner brands because I have been using the same liners for all my cupcake recipes, including ones from RHC, all the time without any problems. I appreciate any information you can share with me.
Below was Rose and Woody’s reply below. It did not help me because I tried both methods to spray the cupcake liners and the other batch, without baking spray. Both batches ended up with the liners falling off the cupcakes. I liked the Chocolate Butter Cupcake recipe’s taste and texture; but it isn’t pretty because the cupcakes do not stick to the liners.
During our testing we did not have your described problem when the liners were sprayed with Baker’s Joy as stated in the preparation.
1. Did you use baking spray with flour on your liners?
2. Have you baked other chocolate cupcake recipes, as chocolate recipes are known to stick to liners?
