Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

This is a chocolatey cake with generous pieces for the calorie count! I liked it. Not sure it was necessary to put the cocoa and flour through a sieve. Next time I may try it with white whole wheat. Submitted by:

My all time fave cake EVER!!! My mom made it for me every year on my birthday. We used to use homemade buttercream frosting but I may have to tweak the recipe so it fits my current lifestyle. Good suggestions with low/fat free mayo! PS-the miracle whip adds some weird tangy tastes so I use reg.mayo Submitted by:

I've made this cake for years - WAY better than box cake. Generally, I just dust it with 10X sugar to make it look pretty. This is the standard birthday cake for my children! Submitted by:

I made this cake vegan by using trader joes reduced fat vegan mayo. It was delicious! The cupcakes rise so well, could have made about 20, but got 15 really nice looking cupcakes:)

My mother made this when I was growing up. She always put a few chocolate chips on top while it was still warm and they melted into a rich icing. I do suggest that you use strong coffee in place of the water. It will enhance the chocolate flavor without really affecting calories! Submitted by:

This was very easy to make and resulted in a rich chocolate cake. I let cool and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Very yummy. I think I will take out 2 minutes earlier next time, as it was a little drier than other people said their's were. 20 minutes should do it! Thanks for the recipe!! Submitted by:

I will serve this with the confectioner's sugar next time for a change up. It's very moist, and cooked up easily. I usually have a hard time getting my cakes out without them sticking/ripping. No problems with this and my kids loved it! Submitted by:

I really liked how easy this was, and how few ingredients it used. I was able to whip it up in a jiffy when my daughter decided she *had* to have some chocolate cake. I only had vegan mayo on hand, and it worked great! I also sifted a bit of powdered sugar over the top, and it was very pretty. Submitted by:

just made this cake using Hellmann's 1/2 the fat olive oil mayonnaise, so good you would think it came out of a box.
The serving size for the calorie count is half decent too.

This is fantastic, I made it for a friends birthday and they couldn't believe it when I told them it was actually very low calorie. However does anyone have any ideas how to top it? I used icing butter and fruit but I would love to hear if anyone has a lower calorie alternative topping for the cake. Submitted by:

This is very good! I made it with whole wheat pastry flour and it was very moist. Felt like it was missing something but was good enough for me to make again! Would like to experiment using agave instead of the sugar. Submitted by:

Easy to make. Taste was ok, like a protein bar. Consistency was thick. After taste testing, I decided icing was needed. Submitted by:

This cake is good but it did turn out dry. There may be 2 reasons for this: 1) I used Splenda and 2) I used 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour.
I will try to make with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup Splenda and add some applesauce. I will come back and post here to let everyone know how it worked.

Just in case anyone needs to know, the recipe works with whole wheat pastry flour and Vegenaise (for those avoiding the eggs). I made it as cupcakes, and they crowned nicely. I just gave them a little dust of powdered sugar since we were picnicking. My vegan daughter pronounced them delicious! Submitted by:

This sounds really good and 189.5 calories for 1/12 of a serving is not bad. Thanks Submitted by:

I'm gonna try this out but use about half whole wheat flour and increase the baking soda a smidge. I always look for ways to add fiber. ;) Will let you know how it turns out! Submitted by:
