I'm making a cake for a little boy who wants chocolate chips in a chocolate cake. Just wondering before I try it out this weekend as a test if the chocolate chips melt or do they stay in tact when baked in the cake?

No, they don't melt. They will still have texture in the cake.

Spray them with pam and coat with a little flour or dry cake mix if you're not baking from scratch. It will help them stay suspended in the cake batter and not sink.

Using mini chocolate chips also might help to make sure they don't sink to the bottom of the cake tooicon_smile.gif

If it is a scratch recipe and the batter is thick, they shouldn't sink to the bottom when you stir them in.

I need to try this soon. I want to make a very chocolately cake and I think chips will add just the right amount of extra chocolate. Thanks for the idea.

I make chocolate chip cake all the time with no problems. Vanilla cake base w/mini choco chips. Toss them with a little flour and the don't sink.
