Help! I have an order for a Red Velvet cake with chocolate chips in it for this coming weekend and in my trial cake the chips sank to the bottom of the cake. Any suggestions on how to keep the chips evenly distributed throughout the cake?

toss them in a bit of flour first til they are lightly coated...keeps them where you put them in the batter icon_smile.gif

I find the flour works well. I also use the mini chips. I'm not really sure if that would make a difference.

Flour or a little bit of your dry cake batter (mix) works, too.

If you're using a cakemix, adding instant pudding to the batter helps to keep them suspended. Another option is to sprinkle them on top right before baking so they sink to the middle instead of the bottom!

Quick update...I used the mini chips, tossed them in flour and gently folded them into the batter...very gently! and the cake came out great! The chips were perfectly and evenly distributed throughout the cake. Thank you all for your advise. It's greatly appreciated! Karen
