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
this is nutso good and easy to make
