Ok UPDATE!!!!! I let the cake sit overnight and tasted it again and it was Delicious!!! Sooooooo much better... So on that note I changed my rationg from 3 stars to 5! I am a true believer that you can make a delicious chockolate cake with mayonnaise lol I thought this cake was just ok...Not a bad recipe but certainly not one one that Id make again anytime soon.It does bake up fluffy and moist but it definitely is Not sweet enough so it really needs 1/2 cup more sugar. I felt like it wasnt chocolatly enough just my own personal preference.if your looking for a fast and very few ingredient chocolate cake then this recipe is Perfect!!

Delicious cake! I made this for a friend who remembered her mom making it when she was young. I took the advice of another reviewer and added an extra 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and baking soda because I was using low-fat mayonnaise. The cake came out perfect, I frosted it with chocolate buttercream frosting and it was a hit, my friend and I both loved it!

I have loved this cake since I was a child and my mom made it for my birthday every year. Thanks for posting it, Debbie! I accidentally used light mayo (not fat free), so I upped the amount of baking powder and soda each a half teaspoon to make up for no eggs to help the cake rise. To my surprise it came out perfect! To think it was "light" was a bonus!

Fabulous ! Very easy to make and not as sweet at the usual chocolate cake. A real winner for afternoon tea.

This is the mayonnaise cake that I remember from when I was younger! Super Chocolate-y and very moist! (I like it with my Chocolate Butter Cream Icing recipe though!)
