I always use milk instead of water... it makes a very moist cake! I also use applesauce instead of the oil if i am trying to make it healthier for the kids :) If you are making a cake/cupcakes for a party... make it in advance! Pop them in the freezer before icing them. Pull them out the day of the party and apply the icing. I actually prefer them this way, it almost makes them more delicious and saves you a ton of time!

Moist cake

Moist cake

I just wanted to comment. I raised my 6 children in Salem, NH. That was back in the 1960's. A friend of mine shared a recipe with me and my Duncan Heinz cake mixes became so moist. I used 4 eggs, 1 package of instant pudding, flavor of the cake, 2 cup of oil and cooked per the package instructions. Then some years later, don't know exactly when, Duncan Heinz put the pudding in the cake. People used to rave about my cakes, how moist and fresh they were. TYou. But, today, I just follow the package
