Based on the other reviews I decided to bake the cake for a shorter time about 45 min. and I added about 3/4 cup of applesauce, when the cake come out I brushed the cake with melted butter. I believe these attempts kept the cake moist. I also added cream cheese frosting while the cake was still warm. End result mmm good, reminded me of spice cake. Update: I just had another piece of cake after it had cooled and it did turn out dry like cornbread. I'm baffled.
