I need to make a Chocolate Chip Cake for a little boys birthday and i'm wondering if there is a trick to preventing the chocolate chips from sticking to the bottom of the pan?I've made a few sample cakes and have had no such luck.I've tried lightly coating them in flour and i've tried placing them on top of the cake.Both have resulted with the chips at the bottom still. icon_sad.gif

Any other ideas?

Use mini chips and shake them in flour before you add to the batter. Only mix until just combined.

Hi, I just made one (the tractor cake in my pics) and wrecked 2 layers before I got smart and put parchment paper in the bottom of my pans. I sprayed the pans with cooking spray, put parchment cut to fit the bottom down, and sprayed the top of the parchment lightly with more cooking spray. I also used mini-chips so they wouldn't all sink. It's kind of a pain, but worth the extra step to be sure the cakes come out in one piece! icon_smile.gif

I tried Teresa1976s suggestion but with cupcakes and mine still sank. However, I think I used too many. I'll be watching this hoping for a solution as well!

I only use about 1/2 cup of mini's for doctored DH mix. I also have only done chocolate chip cup cakes. I would surely do the parchment thing for a cake, good idea.

Try adding 1tablespoon of flour extra to the cake batter. Use mini chocolate chips and stir them into thebowl of batter.

Mini chips work great. I have made a couple of cakes "polka dotted" using mini chips. Just pour some in stir, pan and bake. No problems.

One note, I didn't bang the H--- out of those cakes to remove air bubbles.

If you use pudding in a doctored mix, it thickens the batter. which helps with keeping chips suspended.
