prep 0:10       total 0:38




1 pkg. (1-1/8 lb.) plain dark chocolate fudge cake mix
1 cup water
1 cup Hellman's Mayonnaise
3 lg. eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract


Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 2 9-inch round cake pans. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl, blend with an electric mixer on low speed for one minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Divide batter evenly between the 2 pans. Bake the cakes until they spring back when lightly pressed, about 28-32 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool on racks for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of each cake and invert on to cooling rack. Cool completely and frost as desired.

This is such a delicious and easy cake--very moist, too! From the Cake Mix Doctor. It mixes up in minutes. Frost with your favorite frosting--mine is Perfect Chocolate Frosting, also posted here on Foodgeeks. Serve with a big glass of ice cold milk. There is mayonnaise in this cake--don't say yuck! It adds moisture, but no mayo flavor. Really, it's just eggs and oil, right? (makes a 2 layer cake)
