How do i stop chocolate chips from sinking

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi just wondering if any one can help me (although i think im beyond help lmao) when ever i make a chocolate chip cake the chips sink to the bottom and make a horrible mess, i always make a madeira cake as it is a great texture for covering with fondant. Any ideas on how to stop choloate chips from sinking would be great x

Just coat them in a little flour. Works great.

coat the chips in flour or cake mix! place them in a zip lock bag and add flour/cake mix shake it all around and add it to the rest of the mix

It also helps to use the MINI size chocolate chip. Smaller & lighter so they sink less.

This is a great idea. I never thought of this. I wonder if this would work for other items besides chocolate chips. I was once asked about making a cake with skittles in it. Do you think this will work for the skittles as well?

I use flour to keep raisins and candied fruit from sinking. Have never tried skittles, but a trial run would certainly taste good!
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

I keep an almost empty Hersheys cocoa container toss the chip in it and coat them in cocoa, dump them in a strainer over a bowl then I can reuse the cocoa for the next batch of cc.

Flour would probably work for the skittles too. The flour binds to the batter keeping the candy from sinking. Skittles? never would have thought of this, how fun to cut into a cake and find skittles! Im trying this for my nieces cake coming up in March
