Turned out dry & I don' :S

I just tried making this for some friends. I followed the recipe with painstaking accuracy it came out way too dry. I probably did something wrong but I can't figure out what.

I made sure to use non-dutched cocoa powder to prevent getting the problem Lina had.

I wasn't able to pour the batter into my cake pans it was too thick -- it was more like the vegan brownie batter on this website. Instinctively I knew something was wrong at this point but I sadly dismissed that thought.

I made sure my oven thermometer was accurate beforehand by doing the boiling water test & it was. Also I did double the recipe to make a layered cake, so I think my multiplication below is correct:

1 cup + 2 Tbps
1 cup + 1/4 cup + 2 Tbps
2/3 cup
2 oz
1/4 cup + 2 Tbps
1 tsp

2 Tbps
2 tsp

1 + 1/2 cup
2 tsp
1 tsp

I also baked the layers on the middle rack in the over & moved them around half-way through baking. At 20 min bake time, a toothpick in cake out with batter, so I only cooked them 5 min more & the toothpick came out clean by this point.

I made sure to use stainless steel cake pans that aren't dark or non-stick, since I've had tons of problems with dark/non-stick bakeware burning/overbaking everything.

I'm at a loss :'( Any ideas? I really want to get this one down because it looks like da bomb!
