    Default suggestion for making a box cake moist

    HI Cindy Sue, I just received my magazine from the Cooking Club of America
    and they have a tip on how to ensure the moist cake. This is what it says:
    To ensure the moistest cake, don't cool it on the counter. Instead, as soon
    as you take the cake out of the oven, remove it from the pan and wrap it well
    in plastic wrap to seal ion the steam. Then freeze the cake. When you're
    ready to frost it, remove from freezer and let it stand at room temperature,

    still wrapped, for 15 minutes. Then remove the plastic wrap and spread the
    frosting. When you're done, place the cake in the refrigerator to let it
    defrost completely.

    I find my cakes are always moist when I add a couple Jars of baby food!

    Lynn, what kind of baby food do you use ? And exactly how much do you use ? I've never heard of using this.

    When I was younger and made box cakes, I would add a box of instant pudding to the mix. Worked like a charm.

    Extra egg yolk would also make it more moist.

    I use applesauce instead of oil, and not only is it moist, but its lower in fat.

    I use instant pudding as well. But I orefer baby food because it is just pureed fruit anyway. I hve used the peaches for a peach cake. Pears for a nice sweet taste to vanilla cake, apricots for a tang to an orange cake You can use almost anything your imagination can come up with
