This will be my first time making a choc cake from scratch. Is their a paticular mayo that you used for this reciepe? What about the flour, is it all purpose flour? Any tips for me? Thanks
This is my family's favourite cake- I have always used Miracle Whip for the mayo and use all purpose flour.
I used mayo (not miracle whip) and all purpose flour.
I am so afraid that the taste of the mayo will come through. Can you actually taste it?
Mayo is made from egg yolk and oil blended together. Those are both very standard items for a cake recipe.
This cake is absolutely delicious. Very moist, but sturdy enough to stack. I have also made cupcakes with this recipe. Real nice chocolate taste. Will be my go to chocolate cake recipe.
I made this for a birthday cake. I used one and a half quantities to make 3 layers since two layers didnt rise enough in my opinion. The cake was moist and stacked well. On tasting, I thought the cake had too much cocoa powder in it. I asked 4 other people's opinions and they said they thought it was too rich, and could only eat half a slice (I used minimal filling & frosting). The kids didnt like it. I will keep on looking for a great chocolate cake recipe.
I made this receipe as is and thought it was a bit stiff... I just remade it and replace the water by milk and it is a lot better! Very good!
This is the easiest and best cake ever.. sprinkle a little powdered sugar on it and its a quick dessert!
