If you want a box mix, try the WASC recipe by substitution.

I Use WASC (kakeladi's original) and have never had a problem with dry cake. Everyone always comments on how moist it is.

alwaysmoist cake, I get a ton of compliments.
Use any dunkin hines cake mix and make as normal
then add
1 extra egg
1 cup sour cream
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 pkg instant pudding mix (try to match cake flavor if no match us Vanilla)

This makes extra batter and the moistest cake.

I, too, use kakeladi's original WASC. It is super moist and I always get a ton of compliments. I haven't used it for chocolate though. I use the darn good chocolate cake from the cake doctor cookbook. It is really moist. Try the WASC and I bet you will love it.

Welcome, cojack!!
WASC is 'white almond sour cream' cake, and it's heavenly. It's in the recipes section of this site; you should be able to type in that name in the Search function. And it's a very moist recipe!! Best Wishes!

I hope it's okay to post this question on this thread. I'm having trouble from time to time with dryness because of my convection oven. I use a pan of water in the oven, I bake at 325. Is there anything else i can do? There are hot spots and i think I have identified them all. I do try to bake around them. It's a commercial oven, older. HELP! TIA

The WASC recipe does not say if the egg whites should be beaten. Do they have to be beaten and then folded in the cake mixture?

Thank you.

When I make any of the WASC cake recipes, I sift all the dry ingredients together into a large bowl, and mix all the wet ingredients in a second larger bowl.

Then I add the dry to the wet and beat for 2 mins. using a hand mixer at medium speed.

If using a stand mixer, I would mix at the lowest speed for 2 mins. or less.

When it comes to mixing, MORE (as in more speed or longer mixing time) is not BETTER. Overmixing will develop the gluten and result in a tough cake.

It's also necessary to measure the flour correctly:

Do NOT use the "scoop and drag" method and then shake to level the flour.... You should be aerating the flour prior to gently spooning it into the measuring cup and using a straight edge to level.

Beat egg white before adding to dry ingredients or not?

1. sift ALL the dry ingredients together into a large bowl, and

2. mix ALL the wet ingredients in a second larger bowl.

3. add the dry to the wet and beat for 2 mins. using a hand mixer at medium speed.

Have you tried soaking them with a simple syrup after they're done? It'd help make it more moist and add some nice flavor.

I've made the WASC recipe a few times, and I DO NOT beat the egg whites. I just seperate them all into one bowl and then dump them in and mix. I like how it turns out. It isn't supposed to be a fluffy angel food type cake (although to me, it TASTES a lot like angel food cake but in texture is regular cake). I've never read any mention of needing to beat the egg whites first either. I just put in the cake mix, flour, sugar and whatever little dry ingredients, give it a little stir, the start adding the wet stuff, mixing as I go (I don't combine the wet stuff seperately).
