I have a question about the recipe "Triple Chocolate Madness Cookies" from kapnic. 1/2 cup cake flour?
Barbara is a trusted source on General Cooking.
I can't edit the question, so I'll post the details here. I'm making these now. I refrigerated the dough. After 10 minutes they are kind of a soft (delicious chocolate) mess. I'm thinking there is not enough flour relative to the amount of fat in this recipe. I baked off the first dozen (put a melted glob in vanilla ice cream-- delicious-- but not what I was going for,) and have a bowl of dough in the fridge. I'm thinking of adding more flour and baking powder. What do you think? Thanks.
Ok, here's an update. I ended up baking them for about 15 minutes. They are puffier than the photos, and probably not as wet. Still delicious.
I would think more flour is the answer
Thanks. I ended up just baking them longer. They taste good but they don't look like the picture.
This is a bit late, but I had the same question recently and found this helpful: http://www.pastryaffair...
Thanks. I wasn't asking for that reason; it just seemed like the fat to flour ratio was off--lots of fat, very little flour--and the cookies were very runny.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
