When I make mine I do, 1/3 tsp baking powder, 2 T eggbeaters and 1 T water. I'm not suer if the extra egg or less water would make a difference...
Less baking powder would make it a little less happy. Might try putting less in the cups too. so maybe 1 portion is 2-3 cups not 1..
The recipe I use only has 1/8 tsp baking powder and no egg. Sometimes I use more like 1/4 tsp and get a fluffy airy cake. The only time I use 1/2 tsp is making 4 packets (12 mini muffin pan cakes)..
Shake cakes are similar to the brownies and I use the same oven directions - 1 packet, 1 cake, 15-18 minutes. That will make more cake and less fudge. The mini cakes bake about the same. Basically, I kept trying until I found what worked for my oven....
Hope that helps....
When I make shake cakes, I like to make several at a time, too. Try using a 350 degree oven for 17 minutes or so. I put my individual cake dishes on a cookie sheet or pizza pan, so if they do run over, the mess wouldn't be so awful. I think my recipe uses 1/2 t of baking powder, 2 T egg beaters, 2 T water for each cake. Don't give up! I love the ready to drink shakes. But the only way I really like the powder shakes is in a cake....Good luck!..
I make 2 shake cakes a day, everyday. When I tried to just double the recipe to save me some time, it didn't turn out so I've never done this again...
Thank you all for these great suggestions!! I have used less water and baking powder and have had much better success! It actually comes out like a cake! You guys are wonderful thank you so much! Now I don't have to send back 5 boxes of shake mix!..
This sounds really good and I think I have all the stuff needed..might experment with this tomorrow,thanks!..
Hi....I would like to try these....so can someone tell me how to do it?! What do you bake them in?.
And so it's one milk shake packet, 1/8t baking powder, 2T egg beaters and 2T water? Mix it up and put it in what?!.
I put mine in a small ramekin dish. I love it!..
I just use a microwave safe bowl usually the same bowl I mix it up in. I don't always use the eggbeaters - sometimes just the baking powder and water until it forms a "doughy" consistency - I found that too much water causes it to collapse (or explode)...
I saw your post and wanted to reply.. I have done this several times and always come out with good results 1 Pkt shake mix.
1 Tbsp liquid or real egg white (less calories).
1 Tbsp sugar free syrup any flavor or use 2 Tbsp water.
If I have syrup on hand I use 1 Tbsp syrup 1 Tbsp water.
Either way it's 2 Tbsp total liquid plus the egg white.
1/4 tsp baking powder.
I use a small throw away dixie bowl that has been sprayed with pam.
Microwave for 85 secs depending on the consistency you like.
It will take a few times before you get it right on the timing..
Hope this Helps Kate..
I always use an old (clean) tuna can as a mold. I just spray with a bit of cooking spray, fill up with the batter, and then throw it in the toaster oven for about 15 minutes..
