Mom always made this special cake for my birthday meal. It's very moist and has a nice, light chocolate taste, and the flavorful frosting is the perfect topping. — Deborah Amrine, Grand Haven, Michigan

My daughter made this recipe for her FACE (home ec) class project. She easily followed the instructions exactly and the frosting. It turned out delicious! She received a perfect score :)

Have made this cake for many years, but use a cup of cold brewed coffee instead of water. It adds great flavor.

I am dairy intolerant and on a diet, but this recipe works perfectly with light mayonnaise and sweetener instead of sugar. Thank you!

It's an absolutely delicious cake. I was a bit wary about the mayonnaise but was very surprised when I tried the cake. My guests really enjoyed it and it will now be one of my favourites as it is so quick and easy to make. Just loved the fudge tasting frosting. Definitely 5 stars.

I have made this recipe since the 1950's and mine called for hot water and more coco- when I went to a family gathering, they ask me to bring this cake- always go home with an empty pan 13x9 pan..
