I've searched...I've googled. I have a guy who wants a chocolate cake with M&Ms IN THE CAKE. Everything I've read, the M&M's sink. Then I thought about using mini M&M's...because they aren't so heavy?
Has anyone put M&M's in their cake batter? Results?
Never done it with cake, but I like the mini ones much better in cookies they seem to mix in more evenly. Why not sprinkle them on top right before you put it in the oven? they won't have a chance to sink as much if they start baking right away.
Don't know about sprinkling Suzy. Sounds like a good idea, but I'm hoping someone has used M&Ms as an igredient and can give me some insight. Don't want to wing this if I don't have to. Thanks for your reply.
I would use the minis also. Mix your cake batter then coat the M&Ms with flour and mix in. This works for choc chips so maybe it will for the candy HTH
I know I coat blueberries with flour and they don't sink when I make a blueberry pound cake......maybe it will work with M&M's????????
Have you looked online to see if any cake mixes sell mix with m&ms to mix into the batter? That might give you something to go on. Also try checking the m&m site for recipes.
I have googled my patoot off. The M&M site has recipes but not for cake. I'm going to course chop regular m&ms so when I toss them in flour (like I do my blueberries) that the flour has something to "stick" to rather than slide off the slick candy coated shell. We'll see...I'm gonna do a test cake first on this one. Don't want a gooey sunken mess.
Keep us posted on how your trial cake went, I hope the flour sticks to the slick m&m's enough. Good Luck!
