It mostly depends upon the size of the cupcakes you are making, for example, if you’re making the regular size cupcakes, you can bake cupcakes at 350 for 11-13 minutes.
though it also depends upon the size and number of cupcakes,
so depending upon the area and the numbers of cupcakes you may want to bake it for 14-15 minutes at 350,
how long to bake mini cupcakes at 350

At what time you should check for doneness for cupcakes?
Always check the doneness for cupcakes before 4-5 minutes mentioned in the recipe.
for example, if in a recipe it is announced that, Bake the cupcakes at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, then Check whether your cupcakes are ready or not at 30 minutes.
But How do you know when cupcakes are ready?
The easiest way to tell if a cupcake is ready or not is by inserting a toothpick during baking. If it comes out clean or with just a few dry crumbs attached, then consider your cupcake is done.
or, if you wanna make sure that your cupcakes are baked thoroughly and they’re all the way cooked, just take your cupcake, you’re gonna press down the center, if they puff up and you get a bounce-back then you’ll know the cupcakes are ready
once you’ve done that you’re ready to frost your cupcakes.
and that’s how you know how long to bake your cupcakes.
some extra tips to make perfect domed cupcakes:
Always read the recipe for exact instructions as the batter density may vary.
If you are baking in a pan with a dark or non-stick surface, you should lower the recommended recipe temperature by 25°F to avoid over-browning. Dark pans give your cakes a darker finish when baked.
Try to make cups with non-stick pan spray before baking. so that they won’t stick.
Always place cups on a cookie sheet or sheet pan for level baking and easy removal from the oven.
You may need to add more baking time for some shapes.
To remove cupcakes, turn them upside down and apply gentle pressure to the bottom of the cupcakes while gently peeling the cups away.
how long to bake cupcakes depends upon several factors, like the size of the cupcake, quantity of the cupcakes and at how much temperature you’re baking.
generally, you should bake your cupcakes at 350 for 11-13 min for normal, 10-11 for mini cupcakes, and 15-18 min for jumbo cupcakes.
but don’t completely rely on these numbers, no one can give you the exact timing you’ve to figure out on your own.
