Moist and spicy. Requested by my Mom. She had me leave the nutmeg out as she could not eat that, so I heaped the measures of the other spices.

This didn't fill up 1/4 of the 9x13 pan so I was worried it wouldn't come out right, but it was perfect. I used lite mayo and 1/2 sugar/1/2 Splenda and it was great.

The taste of this cake was wonderful. Slight texture problems, though; it fell in the center and was only about 1" thick in the middle (I used a 9x13 pan). It was so sticky and dense. I would like to try it again but not sure how to remedy - maybe a little less mayo. High marks for flavor and ease of prep. Thanks!

This cake is fabulous. I didn't have any eggs or butter and really was craving a simple flavorful easy cake. This one did the trick. The mayonnaise made it very moist and nice mixture of spices. It took me a whole 35 minutes from start to finish. I topped it with a simple vanilla and powdered sugar frosting while it was still a little warm and it made a nice smooth glazy frosting instead of anything too thick. Will definately make this cake again. Thank you for posting.
