– Using of pizza cheese gives a stringy texture inside the
– Omit the green chillies if your preparing these for children.
– Tapping the cupcake tray gently after the mix is filled in is
very essential as it removes the air bubbles and allows the
cupcakes to rise well. Please do not open the oven whilst the cupcakes are baking.
