    I just finished making n serving chocolate-cherry cake. The recipe is posted by Barb. Mine turned out perfect, but a friend of mine, added, one cup of water while mixing the ingredients - i.e. eggs, cake mix and pie filling. Now her cake was sort of soggy, was tasty, no doubt, but she said that it was kind of not baked properly, what can she do to improve on it? Can she do anything?

    I'm confused - why did she add the water? I haven't made this particular recipe, but I have made almost the identical recipe and I know that the pie filling and the eggs are all the moisture needed. Maybe she thought that the box mix had to be prepared into batter first and the normal box instructions would call for the addition of water? That's all I can think of.

    Maybe she could put it in a microwavable bowl and cook it briefly in the microwave. Microwaves are notorious for drying things out - that may salvage her cake. icon_smile.gif

    Hey, dropping in! If that is the recipe I posted all it requires is the three ingredients; cake mix, eggs,& pie filling. Those three make a really moist cake that is super quick. I use it for an emergency cake, topped with ice cream or whipped topping. I really don't think the microwave will help any, sorry guys. ;-( Barb

    Charishma, this is just one of life's lessons where you have to learn from your mistakes. Just tell your friend that everybody makes mistakes.
