Hi all,

I'm making the Cake Mix Doctor's Ever-So Moist Chocolate Cake recipe, and I transposed the oil and water amounts. It SHOULD have been 1/2 cup oil and 3/4 cup water, but I did it backwards (1/2 cup water & 3/4 cup oil).

Is this a disaster in the making? I'm baking it up now anyway, but has anyone done this before? What were the results?

Many thanks!

It's probably not a disaster. It might be a little denser than you wanted it, but on the other hand you might have come up with something new and wonderful!

Nope, I'm sure it'll be fine icon_smile.gif

Thx all! It actually is a bit denser and moister. I tried some scraps and could only tell a slight difference, as could my husband, but definitely not a disaster. Whew! icon_biggrin.gif
