What To Avoid While Making this Recipe?

  1. Avoid overmixing the batter, as it can result in tough cupcakes.
  2. Make sure not to overbake the cupcakes, as they can become dry.
  3. Do not substitute the white vinegar, as it reacts with the baking soda to help the cupcakes rise.
  4. Ensure the water is warm but not hot, as this can affect the texture of the cupcakes.
  5. Be careful not to overfill the cupcake liners, as they may overflow during baking.
