Great tasting cake, the only issue I have is the added eggs. Mayonnaise has eggs in it so there is not a need for the extra eggs. I have made Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake for over 45 years and have never put eggs in it and have had it turn out wonderfully every time. The added coffee is not a must either, but it does make the chocolate taste pop so it is a great addition.

Decadent and delicious. This was perhaps one of the best cakes I’ve ever eaten. It was rich, moist, and the perfect amount of sweetness. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I did have to add about 4-5 minutes to the baking time. While frosting the cake, I wished I had had more frosting in order to make it easier to cover the cake’s surfaces. There was enough frosting, but just barely. I realized, however, that more frosting would have made the cake too sweet. Add a scoop of ice cream or a glass of milk! Heavenly!
