I want to use the recipe copied below to make cupcakes. I'll be halving the recipe as it makes for 2 layers of cake, and I don't want that many cupcakes. Should I encounter any problems, and if not, any suggestions re adjusting cooking time and temp. Cake is usually divided into 2 10 by 2 inch cake pans and baked for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 min at 300
For cake layers
3 ounces fine-quality semisweet chocolate such as Callebaut
1 1/2 cups hot brewed coffee
3 cups sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder (not Dutch process)
2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
3 large eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups well-shaken buttermilk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
It's called "the spruce-up"
