      Hi Cheah, there are a few reasons why cakes are not moist. They key amongst them are: Temperature (the oven should be preset and cake baked in the right temperature for the right amount of time), Baking tin size (using the right size to ensure the cake mixture is not more dispersed and therefore, being affected by its bake time), ingredient measurements (measurement of the ingredients should be the right measurement without increasing too much or little of one ingredient).

      Apart from these, as each recipe is designed with different consistencies, you may also try other recipes and find the recipe that you were able to make and liked the best 🙂 We have curated a few more Chocolate Cake recipes that you may want to try out.
