Hi I new to making cakes and have learned so much here.
However I want to make a Chocolate Chocolate Chip cake and cant seem to make it happen. My Chocolate Cake recipe must be too thin or something. Any ideas, or does anyone have a recipe for this already?
Thanks!

Is your problem that your batter is too thin and the chocolate chips are falling to the bottom? I've heard other people recommend tossing your chocolate chips in flour first to help them stay suspended in the batter. Never tried it myself, but sounds like it would work if this us your issue.

Try using mini chips, after I started using mini`s I never had any more problems with them sinking to the bottom.

I use mini-chocolate chips and have never had a problem.

Hi, I place mini cc's in a bag, put a spoonful of flour, and shake, then just put them in your batter and stir in. Mine always stay suspended in the batter this way. HTH icon_smile.gif

I would use the minis and mix them in with your dry ingredients before adding the wet.

Thanks everyone! I'm gonna try it with mini's later to see if it works. The batter is very thin so I'm crossing my fingers. icon_smile.gif

bls0127, if a batter is thin any addition will sink to the bottom. I suggest you add another 1/2 cup flour to your recipe. The additional flour will only slightly change your cake. And the thicker the batter the more likely your chips will stay suspended. Dredging chips in flour will not help. Mini choc chips are lighter in weight than regular sized chips so they have a better chance of not sinking.
