The secret to a moist chocolate cake

Chocolate cake ranks among the world's most beloved desserts. Despite being straightforward to make and offering a divine taste and aroma, it can often end up dry and tough. So how do you prevent this?

The simple answer is to add a little brown sugar to the mixture. Brown sugar contains molasses, lending moisture and sweetness to the cake.

Another technique for achieving a moist chocolate cake is adding natural yogurt or kefir to your mixture. These ingredients contain probiotic bacteria, which help retain the cake's moisture.
