What happens if you add pudding to a cake mix that already has pudding?

Some cake mixes, particularly those labeled “extra moist,” might come with a pudding mix. Read the label carefully and don’t add another box of pudding if it is already included because it could make the cake too dense.

Why are my cookie bars hard?

Overmixing develops the gluten in the flour, which can produce tough bars. If the recipe doesn’t call for an electric mixer, mix in dry ingredients using a wooden spoon. When flour or other dry ingredients are “scooped” into the measuring cup directly from the container, it compresses, or becomes packed.

Should I grease a pan for cookie bars?

Any cooking spray left on the pan will become sticky and can cause cookie bars to stick the next time you bake with it. Line the baking pan with parchment paper or waxed paper. When using waxed paper, spray or lightly grease the pan, then place the waxed paper in the pan.

What does sour cream replace in cake mix?

What is this? Cake recipes often call for baking soda or baking powder because they help the cake to expand when it cooks. Baking soda relies on acid to function properly, and sour cream can replace the baking powder to activate the baking soda and allow the cake to rise.

Why is my box cake crumbly but moist?

A cake is crumbly and moist because of the high or low gluten content of the flour that is used to bake it. Flour is an ingredient that contains gluten. When flour is used in excessive amounts to bake a cake, excessive amounts of gluten are therefore added to the cake batter.

  • How do you know when a cookie bar is done?

    For cake-like bars, test with a wooden pick inserted at the center of the pan. If it comes out with a few moist crumbs clinging to it, the cookies are done. Chewy (moister) bars will have a dull, rather than shiny, surface; a slight imprint will remain after touching the surface lightly with your fingertip.
