Has anyone ever found the BC cake mix to be lumpy? I've always had lumps in the batter, but they've always disappeared while baking...lately they haven't been. Should I be using a mixer, instead of just a wooden spoon? Maybe sifting it first? Help please!! Oh yeah, this is only with the white cake???
Yes you can sift it first, or put in in the mixer and mix on low until the lumps are gone - just a few minutes.
Thanks for the reply, I don't know why this is happening all of a sudden? I'll be sure to sift the next batch, I've got these puppies baking all day today! Thanks again!
If you have a whisk, you could also try that to break up the lumps!
Someone here (I think Indydebi) said to sift the box mix before you use it. Last time I made a box mix, I tried it, and it only took about a minute to mix everything together.
I know when I bake from scratch (which is most of the time) I sift EVERYTHING - makes for a better texture.
Once you've sifted it and have the lumps in the bottom of the sifter, just use a spoon to break them up and push them through.
Wow, I've sifted the choc and the white, and not only did it get rid of the lumpy bits, it's changed the texture of the batter completely! (In a good way I think ) The chocolate cake even smells more chocolatey! I'm impressed! Definitely makes the box look, smell, and hopefully, taste more like a scratch cake. Thanks again for the tip!
