Has anyone tried this with success? I was going to make a choc.chip cookie flavored cake, but with m&m's.
I don't see why you couldn't since you can bake them in cookies. They may sink to the bottom though. I've heard a lot of people talking about it here with regular chocolate chips.
Yeah, that is what I was worried about. I don't have a problem with mini choc chips though. I just don't have time to remake something if it doesn't work.
I heard if you coated chocolate chips in flour before adding to cake mix it would prevent them from sinking to bottom. You might be able to try this with the M&M's. HTH
I had a request for an m&m cake. The regular m&ms will definately sink. If you sprinkle the minis on the batter they will drop..but all will not sink all the way to the bottom. Definately use parchment paper on your pan.
I totally agree with Mammafixit, if you coated chocolate chips in flour before adding to cake mix it would prevent them from sinking to bottom. This method should work with the M&M's also.
I coated my m&ms with flour and they literally stayed on top. I wanted them to sink a little. The flouring method did work when I coated my blueberries with when making a pound cake.
Thanks everyone, I will give the flour coating a try. It's for kids, so I know it won't matter too much.
Maybe if you flour the M&Ms but took a skewer or something long & thin & just pushed them down some randomly....then maybe the M&Ms would be throughout the cake....just a thought
Unrelated.. blueberries were mentioned using the flour method. Last time I made my blueberry muffins, I added about a tablespoon of sugar to about three cups of blueberries along with the flour. It made a big taste difference. The sugar stuck to the blueberries and it seemed like the blueberries had a little sugar crunch on the outside. I bake the blueberries still frozen, so the sugar didn't melt. I can never leave a recipe alone.
Well, that sounded interesting, scp1127, but did you like the bluberries with the sweet crunchy outsies? Idf so, I just may give that a try
The blueberries were big to begin with. It wasn't a change you would notice unless you knew you did it. My daughter's lacrosse team are my sometimes taste testers. I made them the regular way and they loved them. The next week they tried them with the little bit of sugar and they were crazy about them. I do have a crumble topping on them also, but that was on both. I also overloaded the blueberries this time and they all said they were better. The extra blueberries were going to bring the sweetness down, so I threw in the sugar.
K, tied it and it worked! Thanks for the advise.
