I made my first attempt at doctoring a cake mix.. It is chocolate and I added one extra egg per box and used milk instead of water and just a bit of oil. It seems to be really runny.....What did I do wrong and how can I correct it?
If you didn't add the normal amount of oil, add more oil. The oil helps it to "emulsify" or thicken. Or add some instant pudding or sour cream.
Yes you need to add a box of pudding to the mix to make it more dense. Choc fudge pudding works well. No extra oil needed but add the 4th egg.
Thanks guys... I already added an extra egg for each box and used milk instead of water.... I sent my sweet hubby to get some pudding mix.... I used two cake mixes.. .should I use two pudding mixes?
P.S. it was a butter recipe mix, so no oil called for... i did add about a tablespoon....
The butter recipe mixes don't take to doctoring as well as regular. In the Cake Mix Doctor books, she says to use butter recipe mix for her recipes, cut the liquid by 1/2 cup. But if you added what the box said, you should be okay. I think you would be safer just using 1 box of pudding for the 2 mixes together. I sometimes use only 1/2 box for 1 mix.
Thanks again... the pudding seems to have done the trick... it sure is good to have CC friends!!!
