  1. Hi Aarthi,good post.Going to try it tomorrow.I have a doubt.To reach 200 C ,how long do we have to pre heat the oven.Mine is 40 litres OTG.

  2. thank you so much for this recipe made from HEALTHY whole wheat flour Aarthy...........

  3. Can u also put the egg version of this. Looks yummy

  4. @Anonymousu can preheat the oven for a good 15 mins

  5. Will half the qty of orange buttercream frosting enough for decorate 9 cupcakes??

  6. I do not have liners. can I bake in mould just after greasing and dusting?
    alternatively, can I user butter paper?

  7. can we user butter paper instead of wrappers? does greasing and dusting method works?

  8. @AnonymousThis cake is so moist, you need wrapper. You can cut small pieces of parchment and line it in the cupcake tray

  9. I tried recipe yesterday. 2 cupcakes burnt, 2 were hard inside and 2 were moist. Time for baking was around 10 mins. What was wrong? Moist cakes were yummy.

  10. @Meghanai think your oven heat it not consistent i think so

  11. Can I substitute lime for orange and try this recipe?Would it work?

  12. Ok thanks. I tried these(orange muffins) yesterday and they turned out really nice!! Will use your recipes as they don't use butter and eggs!!

  13. How to check if oven heating is consistent or not?

  14. @Meghanait depends on the cake which is baked. if it is done in the right time, then it is consistent

  15.
