Hi everyone! I am making my regular Hershey's chocolate cake with my usual tweaks this afternoon. I want to try to add 1/2 cup semi-swwet mini chocolate chips and a small box of instant pudding mix to the batter. The batter will sure be thicker,
My questions are:
1) Should I do 1/4 c or 1/2 c mini semi-sweet chips?
2) Do i need to increase the liwuid or add an extra egg because of my additions?
Hi Naty :) Nice to see you around again. My suggestion i s to add 1/2 c chips and about 3 Tablespoons of strong brewed coffee to your batter. Not having made that recipe not sure if even more liquid would be needed but state with that then see if you think it really needs more.
Kakeladi, thank you and sorry for the late reply. Im debating even adding the chocolate chips next time. I think that is what made it fudgy. Delicious though! Moist as well.
i would think it is the pudding that made it fudgey, naty— the chips are just along for the ride —
Thank you K8Memphis! I am sorry for the late reply. I thought i had sent you a thank you before. I just notice since I'm making another chocolate cake for tomorrow and went back to the post. I think you are right about the pudding. Will omit it.
I agree with K8– the pudding is what made it fudgey Chocolate chips would have no bearing on the recipe unless they totally melted & mixed with the batter
oh for sure — all good — hope it turns out just the way you want it
