Buttermilk will make a moister cupcake than milk, due to its acid content.   Pictured: Triple Strawberry Cupcakes

Use Buttermilk


Vegetable oil makes very moist cupcakes.  I like to add it in addition to butter (butter adds flavor). Pictured: Moist Red Velvet Cupcakes


Add Vegetable Oil

Instant Clearjel or Instant Pudding mix contain a modified starch that let your cupcakes retain more moisture! Pictured: Nutella Cupcakes


Add Instant Clearjel

Check your cupcakes often towards the end of baking, and bake on the top or middle rack (avoid bottom rack). Pictured: Vanilla Cupcakes with Cherry Filling


Avoid Overbaking
