I did not make the cake but I have made mayonnaise cake in the past and really like them. I did make the frosting for another chocolate cake and it is wonderful. I was a bit leery about the egg but this is the smoothest quick frosting I've ever made. I added just a few grains of salt and some extra cocoa because I wanted a darker chocolate than I thought 2T would give.
I've heard many times of cake with mayonnaise, and this was my first try. Very impressed with how moist it turned out. The frosting was delish also. Thanks for sharing.
For some reason this did not hit the spot. A little to much taste of the mayo came out in the cake. Might of been my fault but not really a big hit.
OMG this is wonderful!! I only had 1/2 cup miracle whip so I used 1/2 mayo also to make up the cup. It turned out great! I really wasn't sure (I've never made a cake from scratch before) I poured the icing on the cake while it was still a little warm so that it melted down into it. I was such a big hit the hubby took one bite and tried to run away with the cake!!!( the little pig! he didn't want to share but thats alright the kids tackled him and got some...lol. He didn't belive that I made it from scratch and kept telling me to show him where the box was, I showed him the recipe!! Thanks so much for posting this I won't be buying devils food cake again!!
I made this cake the other night after getting a huge craving for chocolate. I cut the recipe in half and baked it at 350 in a glass 8x8 pan for 15 minutes. I put it in the fridge to cool ( I was in a hurry..LOL) and when it was cooled I frosted it and put it back in the fridge to set the frosting. This cake came out so moist and yummy.. it was chocolately goodness. It deffinately took care of my craving and It tasted a lot like the chocolate cake I remember having as a child, and I am wondering if it is my mom's recipe. A++++
i've made this cake 3 times it disappears very fast. i'm making it today again,its easy an moist and quite satifying
I found this cake to be tasteless and dry. The direction called for the oven to be set at 375 for 30 min. I did not trust this and bake the cake at 350 for 30min. when it came out it seemed more like a whoopie pie consistancy. I ended up pocking holes in the cake and pouring a chocolate liqueur over it to moisten and sweeten the cake which I felt it really needed. Since the liqueur was quite sweet I topped it with whipped cream with a few drops of the same liqueur. I don't think I will try this cake again.
This was just like my hubby remembered :). His mom used to make this for birthday cakes. It was moist and tastey. Great recipe if you like your cakes a little more dense. Be carful though...it's so moist that it can be tricky getting it out of the pan and on to a plate to decorate :o. Will definitely keep this one handy.
Pac 2006 this was so rich and delicious I can't even describe it to you. everybody at work just loved this and wanted to know when I was going to make it again. I did make the frosting which is very sweet but really did make the cake something special. will make again.
Delicious cake! I already had some frosting made so I didn't try the recipe for icing. The cake was sooo moist! And soo easy too wow! I cut the recipe in 1/2 and used only 1/3 cup of sugar. I also used 4 tablespoons of cocoa instead of 2 (with recipe cut in half) Turned out beautifully!
