How to Make a Moist Gluten Free Cake
Well, that’s a great question. Some new gluten free bakers may be wondering why they ended up with a dry cake. The thing you need to know is not to skip out on the moisture ingredients in your cake recipes.
I’ve tried and tested these cakes a million times over before I share them with you, so try not to vary the wet ingredients when making your gluten-free cakes.
You keep them nice and moist by ensuring you have enough moisture added to the batter from ingredients like butter, oil, brown sugar, and even fruit purees or apple sauce. When measuring your ingredients, be sure to stick to the recipe so you end up with a moist cake.
