This is probably the best chocolate cake I have ever made and even ever tasted. It is so moist and even a bit fudgy. I was amazed at how good it was and so easy too! I used Miricle Whip instead of mayo and it worked fine! The frosting was a little runny but very tasty. However it made a bit too much. Will most definitely make again.
