I am using the cake boss recipe and it always seems really dry?  Am I over baking?  Can I add something like chocolate pudding?

yes you might be over baking it--


sure you can add something in there and tweak this and that


but there are boat loads of incredible chocolate cakes out there--


lovely chocolate cakes just waiting to be mixed up baked and devoured==


to help out a dry cake you can make a simple syrup splash


and apply it before you ice it--it will help with the issue--


it's a simple syrup which is equal parts sugar and water boiled till sugar dissolves


then add a flavor or not --either way-- a liqueur or an extract and then brush onto cake


helps to let it set for a few hours to do it's thing


the size of the pan, the way your oven heats, the amount of batter, the way you mixed the ingredients--all of these things are factors in getting it to turn out for you--you can do it!!


but you gotta watch each step and keep trying!!!


i'll post one for you--brb
