I was looking at the Triple Chocolate Fudge Cake by CakemommyTX in the recipes section, and she said that the recipe would do 4-8" cakes or 2-10" and 2-6" cakes or 4-6 dozen cupcake pans. If my oven is not large enough to do all cakes at the same time, how do i save the batter? I was under the impression that if the batter is left out, un baked, that it would not cook/rise good. Am i wrong? If so can i just leave it in the bowl till the others cakes are done then bake the remaining batter? Thanks
How about just making 1/2 a batch at a time?
My personal chocolate cake recipe is huge and makes only slightly less than what that recipe says....I only have one pan of each shape/size, so I always have batter waiting on a pan to get out of the oven. I haven't had any problems. I think as long as you don't leave it an unreasonable amount of time you should be fine. If you don't need that much, then just half the recipe.
This is what she said, she uses two different box mixes:
You cant really half the recipe because the flavor comes from the combo of the 2 chocolate mixes so it makes a lot of cake.
So that is why I was wondering if I could let the batter sit.
Thank you for your help!
Yes, you can let the batter sit out.
Refrigerating and/or Freezing Cake Batter:
(Includes science of baking powder and more.)
I freeze my extra batter all the time....makes for quick, small batches of cupcakes at a moment's notice!! I just divide it up into sandwhich size ziplocks and freeze flat.
Thanks so much! You all have been very helpful!
