Having a moist texture is a must when it comes to baking chocolate cake layers. The enemy of moist cake is dry cake! Throughout this article, we will share with you 5 simple tips to achieve a moist chocolate cake that can make you stand out as the most delicious moist chocolate cake in town.

There are many ways to prevent a dry texture when you make a cake. Try out some of these tips and leave us a comment to let us know which one worked the best for you.

1. Use Oil Instead of Butter

Have you ever considered using oil instead of butter when making a chocolate cake? The reason is simple. Most butters contain 80% fat, 5% milk, and 15% water which the water can strengthen the gluten of the cake’s batter, but at room temperature it solidifies. On the other hand, vegetable oil contains 100% pure fat and is a liquid at room temperature, which plays a factor in creating a moist and fluffy cake.

2. Moisturize Cake with Simple Syrup

Baking is done, but your chocolate cake texture still looks too dry? No worries, you can still fix it! Simply brush a thin layer of simple syrup on top of the cake. Brush it with the simple syrup when the cake is completely cool. The cake will absorb it and you’ll now have a moist chocolate cake. To make a simple syrup, all you have to do is boil the water and granulated sugar together and let it cool before brushing. You can flavour the syrup with other fluid such as lemon juice and vanilla extract for extra flavor

3. Don’t Over-Bake

Timing is everything. Once your cake gets baked for over 30 seconds, you will get a dry-texture cake. So, the tips are very simple. To prevent over-bake, you can simply bake for 1 or 2 minutes early from the recipe’s instruction and gently press your cake if it needs another time to bake. Or you can put a toothpick inside your cake so when it’s baked, you can see the toothpick come out from your cake.

4. Add Baking Soda or Baking Powder

Sometimes, most chocolate cake recipes will put baking soda or baking powder on their recipe. If there’s no baking soda or baking powder on it, you can just add a little amount of baking soda on your batter. Don’t put too much of it otherwise you will get a bitter taste.

5. Don’t Double Your Recipe

If you run a cake shop or bakery, you might get tempted to double (or even triple!) the recipe to roll out more batches at a time. Of course, this will go wrong because you might over-creaming it. Just make a lot of batter instead of doubling your recipe to get a perfect moist-texture chocolate cake.
