Moist cake mix cakes - Page 6

Rice milk and soy milk seem to be the only things when used straight that make a cake too moist. I have baked and cooked with rice milk and it definitely can add too much moisture if you aren't careful. So that's why I always water it down to 50/50 mixture when baking a cake- I don't have any problems with my cake falling apart because it's too moist.

I drink rice milk because I have a slight milk allergy. Besides I prefer the taste of rice milk over cow's milk, cow's milk tastes bitter to me.

Well I tried using the Southern Butter pecan flavored coffee creamer in a Butter flavored cake....sounds good. Well the cake flopped. The center never rose and the cake itself was gummy. Not sure what I did wrong. Just glad I was doing it for fun not for anything special.

Now I'm getting to know the bakers secrets.. icon_biggrin.gif ..LOL...
I'm definately going to try all these tips out..
Oh... when I bake a cake I usually add a big heaping spoon of Helmans real mayonaise....boy does that adds the moisture and flavor...
But I'm game to the new tips as well...

I use the simple syrup (I call it sugar syrup) as a crumb coat. lt works for both crumb coat & making the cake moister. Try it!!

WoW!!!
I have learned a lot with this topic. I will try the milk instead of water on my next cake. I also will use the simple syrup. If I add milk to my cake instead of water do I add the same amount?

After my cake completely cools I wrap the cake with plastic wrap and I keep the cake in the pan and it sits for a day or two. I fill the cake, frost and decorate all in one day. Because I keep my cake in the pan for a day or two does this dry out my cake? My cakes usually taste good but not moist enough. I aim for quality too but I am scared to try things. I will try things now though.

Yes, you use the same amount of milk as you do for water. Glad to hear that you are willing to try this. This will probably help your cakes stay alot moister.

Does anyone use creamers in a chocolate cake? If so, what flavor?



I haven't tried this yet but I'm planning on it for a cake this weekend. I'm making a chocolate cake and there is one company that make a Chocolate Cream coffee creamer. I figure that would be a good one to start with!

Rice and water mixture is rice milk and water, I have that when you cook with rice milk it can be too moist for what you need. So I use a part rice milk, part water mixture. Let's say your recipe called for 1/2 cup of water, I would use 1/4 cup of rice milk and a 1/4 cup of water.
If you are just using regular cow's milk, you don't have to mix it with anything.
