Yesterday I baked The Silve Palete's Chocolate Cake from the NY Times website and thought it lacked some depth. Was wondering if anyone has ever substituted whole chocolate milk for water in a chocolate cake recipe and if so what were the results? Thanks!
If you want awesome flavor, substitute coffee for the water :) coffee makes the chocolate pop! You could use Milk as well :) I have done it both ways. Usually using milk in replace of water in chocolate cakes tones down the chocolate, but, I haven't tried it with chocolate milk yet! That might actually be tasty, lol
I use chocolate milk exclusively, and I love the flavor! In my chocolate cakes it doesn't change it texture wise, I even add a few squirts of chocolate syrup just for good measure lol
I'm not a big chocolate fan, and one day all I had was chocolate milk. I used the same recipe that I always do, but the chocolate flavor was more intense than usual. Try it. I haven't tried the coffee....I don't drink it so I worry that I will taste it.
Thanks everyone. I'm going to give it a try.
