  9. Pour cupcake mixture into the prepared cupcake lines to about 3/4 full.
  10. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick insert into the middle comes out clean. 15 min. Was perfect for my oven.
  11. Cool cupcakes in the pan for about 10 minutes, then remove them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
