WHAT MAKES CAKE MOIST?
Using the recipe’s specified ingredients, measurements and instructions can help you make a moist, mouthwatering cake. Although using the exact ingredients from the recipe is recommended, you can experiment with swapping liquids or adding certain ingredients to make your cake even more moist.
One common ingredient swap that is known to help make cakes remarkably moist is using milk instead of water. Try switching out any water in your recipe for full-fat milk or buttermilk for a moist, decadent texture.
Another ingredient that can enhance the moisture of your cake is mayonnaise. Adding a dollop of mayonnaise to your batter can help make your freshly baked cake softer with an added boost of moisture.
