"I like to get creative with boxed cake mixes. It's more convenient and less time consuming than making cakes from scratch. The mayonnaise in this cake makes it really moist. You cannot tell the mayonnaise is in it. Since mayonnaise is made with eggs and oil, there is no need to add oil to this recipe and it uses less eggs. Instead of the 3 large eggs the directions on the cake mix box calls for, this recipe calls for 2 large eggs."

"Made this with a german chocolate cake mix-did not add chocolate chips-turned out moist -tastes amazing!!!"
"This cake is so moist!! I didn't even need frosting, I just added powdered sugar on top like the picture. I did not have devil's food cake mix on hand, so I used Pillsbury Dark Chocolate mix. This cake would be incredibly rich with icing!
Note: Do not tell your youngest child what is in the cake - they will refuse to eat it!!! 5 stars from everyone in my house (minus my youngest)!"
"Absolutely delicious. I made cupcakes with this and they were perfect. Very moist and flavorful. They weren't too crumbly like some recipes, and held their shape amazingly well when taken out of the cupcake liner. That's another thing - they didn't stick to the liners at all. Will definitely make again, my husband says they're the best he's ever had."
"Very good! Shared this with friends. Made muffins. They went very quickly. Thank you so much for the idea of using mayo - great when you want to use some up. I will be making this again."
"Very nice and moist! When I went to make this, I noticed that I was out of mayo, so I whipped up a batch of homemade mayo (recipe #71967). Even with that extra step, it was super, super easy and fast. This is definitely a keeper!"
"Excellent cake mix recipe. My husband enjoys dessert for breakfast so this was a real treat. Did not taste like a box mix, moist and very good. Thanks for the recipe"
"Such a lovely, easy, moist cake! Enjoyed by all. :)"
"FALL PAC 2008: Auntie - awesome cake!! So moist and chocolately!! Rose agreed (with chocolate all over her mouth)!!"
"So simple, but delicious! Everyone said it was "so moist", and they are absolutely right. I, too, used light mayonnaise and it worked fine. I made it in a bundt pan and finished it off with a lovely chocolate ganache. Thanks for an easy go-to chocolate cake recipe."
"Cannot get Duncan Hines where I live, but used a different mix. It was delicious. I had a similar recipe clipping once, the choc-mayonnaise cake but lost it, so I was pleased to find this one! Thank you, AuntWoofieWoof!"
"This is a fantastic chocolate cake!! So easy and quick, just what I was looking for!"
"absolutely the best"
"This is a good cake. It is very moist. I followed the recipe exactly. Made for 1,2,3 hit wonders tag 2007."
"I"m not sure if this is where i post the review for PAC... but I made this today and had my mom and aunt give it a try also. It won hands down. I made a coffee/mocha frosting but it didn't necessarily even need that. Either way is fabulous~ Very rich and decandent and I"m not sure if it was the chocolate chips (I used bittersweet) or the mayo. thanks Woofie"
"Splendid! Easy and delish! I didn't have chocolate chips which I would have liked but did have white chips which the rest of the family loves. Then I made a white chocolate mess, I guess you'd call it frosing - lol and plopped that on the top. Rave reviews on the cake recipe itself - thank you for posting! Am adding this to my favorite cakes cookbook!"
"What a moist & delicious cake....turned out perfect! I've also made this using Duncan Hines Butter Pecan mix. I added pecans & rum to the batter....marvelous! Thanks for posting this simple but mouth watering cake. Katherine in Alberta"
"I was a little scared b/c I used light mayo instead of regular, but it turned out just fine! Quite easy and delish."
"A very good chocolate cake! It's so nice to start with a cake mix, add a few extra ingredients and have it come out tasting like it was made from scratch. I also used a mocha icing (#23636) that complimented it beautifully. I'll be making this cake again!"
"MOIST!!! EASY!!! I skipped the chips just don`t like crunch in my cake. I topped this yummy cake with Chocolate Mocha Cream Cheese Icing recipe #63740"
