really cake-y cake. I have had a few really good cakes in the last few years that were less spongy and a bit drier than the ordinary kinds of cake out there. What is the secret to making cake with this texture? Every recipe I try ends up with the softer, spongier cake that we are all used to (and that the box brands aspire to). This cake-y cake seems more old-fashioned--seems a bit more like bread. Can anyone help? I am wondering if it is a recipe issue, or whether it has something to do with time cooking, or how you prepare the ingredients, or oil vs. butter vs. ??? Let me know the secret!

Failing that, what's your own personal recipe to try and emulate the actual recipe?
