When making a flavored bc (like nutella flavor) do you just add nutella or raspberries or whatever flavor to your mix? Do you have to adjust other ingredients in your bc recipe?

When using oils for flavoring, I view any recipe as "add flavoring" - what kind makes no never mind.

When adding something that will alter the texture (liquid fruit or cocoa), I balance it with the opposite for texture consistency. for example, by adding cocoa, i'm adding more dry ingredient, so I might have to add more milk to balance it. if adding a fruit puree, I'm adding more liquid, so I might have to add more sugar to balance it.

I've made a few cakes recently with Nutella. I use Indydebi's BC as my base (thank you Indydebi). I ended up using 1/2 a jar of Nutella but I can't remember how much BC I started with. I know it was NOT the whole recipe...maybe 1/2. Anyway...I kept adding the Nutella until I got the right flavor intensity. I did not add any extra milk, but I did notice that the longer I let it mix the smoother it got. When I first started adding the Nutella it was very thick, but I left the mixer on for about 15 minutes and it became very smooth and creamy!!! Everyone loved it!

Marie925, was your bc initially "grainy feeling" after you add the Nutella. I tried adding to IndyDeb's also (love her bc) but it was grainy. Maybe I didn't beat the heck out of it long enough

Yes it was grainy/gritty looking and feeling. But letting the mixer go made all the difference in the world. It ended up very creamy and luscious!

To get rid of the graininess, try dissolving the Dream Whip in the milk (or half and half) warmed up before adding it to the mixture.

I have recently started doing this and it works great. But when I added the Nutella it became gritty anyway...I guess the textures mixing together initially.
