Hi! I'm making a Red Velvet cake with Chocolate chips. However, the chips are sinking to the bottom of the cake as it bakes. Any suggestions on how to keep the chips mixed evenly through the cake as it bakes?
You could try coating them in dry all purpose flour and then mixing them in at the end. Hope it helps
kandycakes thats a great idea. I do that when i put cherrys or fruit in cakes, never thought of using it on choc chips though!
I use mini chocolate chips....also I just sprinkle a bunch of them on the top after the batter is in the pan, and then just swirl them in with a clean finger or a spoon.
I use mini chips!
The flour idea is excellent. I sometimes use a slight variation of it...if I'm using a cake mix, then I will coat the chips with a bit of that instead of flour, prevents you from adding more dry ingredient. Usually works well for me.
I use mini chips as well, mix them in with a spoon after the batter is mixed and then pour.
Never had a problem with sinking.
I do the same as well. I mix in about half of the mini chips before i pour the batter in the pans and then sprinkle more in the pans afterwards. I made one last week just because I wanted to try it and a new icing. My husband took it to work and everyone loved it!
Thank you everyone! I did use mini chips but will definitly try coating them with a bit of flour first. I'll let you know how it goes! Thanks again : )
