    Debbie R.'s Note:

    Very simple and very moist. Be sure to use Dutch-processed cocoa and not anything else. I used Hershey's Special Dark, and it didn't have as much chocolate flavor as I would have liked. I think this might be good with some dark or white chocolate chips folded in.

      This is a great cake! The Dutch cocoa really made this. I've used mayo in cakes before so that wasn't a problem. The cake was moist and delicious. I topped it with a dollop of Cool Whip on each serving. Thanks for sharing this quick and easy recipe. Made for ZWT7-Switzerland.
