I made a chocolate cake batter last night to test for my sons birthday cake. I made a batch of cupcakes with it to test it and it came out dry. Now I’m not sure if it’s from over baking or something in the batter. Can I add anything to the left over batter at this point to save it?
To save your cake batter, add milk to the batter. Also to save tour dry cake/cupcake, drizzle some sugar syrup to your cake. It will moisten it.
Most commercial bakeries pour simple syrup into their cakes and cupcakes after baking. To make a simple syrup mix water and sugar in equal parts by volume and heat on the stove, stirring until dissolved. The simple syrup should keep for about a month if you have any left over.
