Hi I am hoping that someone will be able to suggest or tell me what is going on with my doctored cake mix recipe. I have found this cake recipe to be very tasty and most love it but even to hold it and minimal pressure can cause it to crack and when eating it doesn't stay together very well and can make a mess. I appreciate your comments and understand to most it will sound silly or be plain commonsense I have included the recipe underneath in hope it might shed some light.

370g Rich Chocolate Mix Cake
1 C (250ml) Veg Oil
2 1/2 C (625ml) Water
300g Dark Chocolate Melted
1 C Brown Sugar
2 C Plain Flour
1/2 C Cocoa
1 tsp Bicarb soda
2 eggs

Thanks for your help icon_biggrin.gif

The single cake mix we have in the states is 517g and I don't begin to add the amounts you do to the mix... WHoaaa....that's a lot of oil, flour, sugar, and water to be adding. I have no idea what your mix calls for --Where did you come up with the recipe? Check the recipe forum here, there are several very good doctored recipes.
