I am yet to find a cake recipe that doesn't work well as cupcakes or muffins. Just cut the cooking time way down - I generally find cupcakes take 10-15 minutes to cook, depending on the cake (and your oven) - and away you go.

ix4000, are you sure that temp is right? it seems awfully high.

yip, I'm sure of the temps.

I used to cook muffins at 150 degrees in my old oven. When I got a new one, this temp was far too low. So now cook them on fan forced 190 deg!! If you do a lot of baking, you'll know your own oven.
