I have a recipe that actually calls for mayo. When I first made the cake I was worried that it wouldn't taste all that great because of the mayo but there's really no taste at all. I believe it just adds moistness and believe me it's moist.
. . . I have fond memories of "THE BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE EVER" . . . from when I was a child (and I'm talking about a LOOOOONNNNG time ago) . . . I don't even like chocolate cake and this was fabulous, moist to be sure . . . maybe you would share your recipe, as I don't have this one and would be interested to see what I thought was SOOOO good . . .
. . . Think of things not as they are . . . but as they might be . . . Don't merely dream . . . but create!!!
Great... I'm going to do it then after hearing back from you guys..I'm making a sheet cake that norally takes 3 cake mixes, so since I'm adding Mayo to the mix, I need to triple the amount that the recipe calls for correct?

Growing up thats all I knew about Chocolate cake was that we put mayonnaise in it no eggs because basically the mayonnaise has the eggs in it. It always produces a very moist cake, a little denser than reg. and we always toped it off with chocolate frosting made with cold coffee. A terrific combination!
