Why Is My Batter So Thick?

Batter thickness has a lot to do with the ingredients you use, how much you stir it, and the climate. In general, batters become thicker as they cook. There are a few things you can do to make your batter thinner: add more liquid, increase the baking powder or soda (this will make your cake rise and be less dense), or decrease the flour. If your batter is too thick, it might not bake all the way through and will be dense and heavy.

What other options can you implement from topping?

Cool whip is what we used for the topping on this cake, but if you prefer, you can decorate the cake with a traditional meringue based on egg white and sugar. Or you can also prepare a topping cream with cream cheese, vanilla, and confectioners sugar.

Leftovers

This blueberry bottom cake is a fresh and easy dessert that will keep in the fridge for up to two days. If you have any blueberry bottom cake leftover, you can store it in the fridge for up to 3 days.
