Notes about this recipe

  • ashallen on October 18, 2019

    I am not a big mayonnaise fan, so I see chocolate mayonnaise cakes as a relatively painless way to make extra mayonnaise disappear! This is a fine chocolate cake though not my preferred style. Chocolate flavor is moderate. Texture is quite soft and on the crumbly side - I'll try taking it from the oven sooner than specified in the recipe next time. Given its soft texture, it does best with a frosting that stays soft vs. one that sets up firm. [Cross-post for Annual Edition /Magazine /Science of Good Cooking.]
