This recipe is fabulous. I didn't find it dry at all. I used the waterbath method and followed the cooling instructions. It did take longer to bake and I would recommend a higher temperature. Perhaps 325 or 350. Watch it though don't overcook it. It will continue to cook when the oven is off and door cracked open. I baked it til not too jiggly. A winner! Thank you. Made an awesome birthday cake for my DH.
