Really dry!

Works well for me, the moisture was just right, maybe you like more moist. Try to add more milk, I think it will help.

I used 2 1/2 Lactaid Milk by Kirkland,1 cup Kerry Gold butter and a regular betty crocker cake box instead of other ingredients. If you're using a new oven they tend to burn or dry cakes. I used spray butter, baked my cake in 9x13 glass. 29 minutes 250 then 20 mins 300. Poke until stick is dry. It turned out soft and moist.

The recipe on the cocoa bag is different than this one. It has no water and has 1-1/3 cups milk. Milk will have more fat.
