My daughter always requests a chocolate cake for her birthday so I found this recipe and decided to try it. I'm glad I did. It was so easy and it turned out moist and delicious. I frosted it with a vanilla buttercream frosting I found on this site (Vanilla Buttercream Frosting (From Sprinkles Cupcakes)). Thank you for posting this!
Was a hit at my DH's birthday dinner. And was simple! Did not add cinnamon but used butter cream frosting. Yummy!
Excellent...I usually make cake from scratch, but this will be my stand-by when I'm in a hurry! I also added just a bit of vanilla extract to the batter. Next time may try a little instant espresso powder, but it really is great as is. Frosted with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting (From Sprinkles Cupcakes), which I highly recommend. My daughter's birthday cake was outstanding, it made 12 regular cupcakes & one 8" round cake layer. Thanks for sharing.
Very good cake -- I filled my mini-bundt pan with 12 small cakes, then baked the rest in an 8x8 pan. Added a scant cup of chocolate chips to the batter and omitted the cinnamon, then glazed the tops of the cakes and decorated with slivered almonds. It is a very moist cake, and I think the addition of the mayo elevates it to a more homemade flavor.
Just made this and it was an awesome hit!
Great! Thanks for posting! I had this recipe from a girl I work with and then lost it about 5 years ago. It was great to find it on here! My kids were skeptical about making a cake with mayo until they tried it. It really makes the moistest cake ever!
Very good. A great one for getting the kids to help with! I have made this several times now, and I have found that I prefer to use instant coffee granules instead of the optional ground cinnamon. I just dissolve the coffee (a tablespoon, at least) in the water before adding the water to the rest of the ingredients.
This was a great cake, and no one guessed there was mayonnaise in it! It was very moist and the taste was delicious.
I bake the cakes for the office birthdays. One coworker requested "a moist, german chocolate cake". I topped it with the coconut pecan icing and I received many rave reviews. It was so-o-o moist. 5 stars all the way.
I gave this 5 stars. My family loves this cake it is so moist and yummy. It needs very little frosting as it has great flavor. I got my copy of this from Hellmann's website. Thanks for posting a yummy recipe! Christine (internetnut)
