Too dry even though I added 3 tablespoons milk to dough by accident. Cook less?

DELICIOUS! I used fat-free yogurt and skim milk to cut down on calories! Also I garnished the cake with strawberry slices covered in chocolate syrup! Definitely a keeper! Thanks! :P

This is good and I did find it nice and moist. I think the people who complained that the cake was dry probably left it too long in the oven. I think it's the sort of cake that can go from moist to dry very quickly. I added a little more liquid than what the recipe called for (eg: just slightly over 1/2C of veg oil, slightly more than 1/2C of yoghurt) to prevent it from being dry. I would definitely make it again!

Very moist and tasty. I didn't have a 9" square pan so made it in two round 8" pans. Baked for 25 minutes and it turned out great. Sandwiched the two with chocolate spread. Thanks for the recipe!

not really a chocolate cake, so I added some cocoa camino powder...Now its chocolate cake!!! great recipe...I almost always put yogurt in as a substitute wet ingredient....thanks for sharing...

I made these and from suggestions of others, added a few tbsp of milk to the batter. I used plain greek 0% fat yoghurt. I also changed 1/2 cup of flour to 1/2 cup of cocoa powder because I was looking for a chocolate recipe - I made these into 16 cupcakes. I didn't have butter on hand which is mainly why I picked this recipe. The cupcakes only took 15 minutes to bake, and I am at altitude (Calgary AB) but they were tasty and moist. I haven't iced them yet, will be making them into some kind of halloween treat. Thanks for the recipe! Rating of 4 stars because I didn't make it as-written. The cupcakes were more dense than fluffy, which is fine with me because I want to dress them up and I don't want them to be too fragile.

Really REALLY dry cake. The cake was NOT sweet either. To top it off, the icing was extremely bitter and I'm a HUGE dark chocolate fan. Will only try again with more sugar and milk in cake batter and semi sweet chocolate in the icing. What a disappointment.
