i made a cake and it came out very greasy to touch and was very moist it was cooked as i put a knife through it and it came out clean i have made several cakes and only one came out like this, what did i do different all ingredients were the same except margarine that was a cheaper one than normal im confused.
That's strange. My bet would be if all the others were ok, and then you changed margarines, that would be the culprit. The one thing about margarine is that it has a high water percentage compared to butter and the different %'s do different things to food.

Margarine was developed as a cheap substitute for butter.
Both butter and margarine are approximately 80% fat and 20% water:
Make sure not to confuse "spread" like country crock for margarine. It usually has a higher water content and usually says "not suitable for baking" on the label.
yeh i thought it might have been that i was rackin my brains and worse thing of all it was a cake i took into college how embarrassing i asked the tutor but he said he didnt know he wasnt very helpful hes a fireman by day says it all really.
