Okay, so a friend of mine is trying to make some muffins and has asked me how to make them more moist. Since muffins typically have a different texture than a cake, I am not really sure of an answer to this. Any suggestions? Thanks!

You can try to add some pudding.
I tried a chocolate cake, usually very dry...I added a small package of chocolate pudding and I got the most moisture chocolate cake that I have ever baked. It was delicious...Then I tried a Buttercream cake .. and I added a Vainilla pudding package..You may want to try to add at least 1/2 of the package to see how it goes. Good Luck!

I've seen a few muffin recipes that use applesauce in them to help with the moisture. I'm not sure on the details of this though.

What's the recipe they use?

I switched out oil from butter in my muffin recipe. They are moister. Also if you heat up a muffin in a microwave (we do about 30 seconds, sometimes less), it warms up and is moist again.

But muffin recipes vary. So if you post the recipe, then we can also tell from the ingredients.
