This dairy free chocolate cake uses mayonnaise to get that richness and flavour that you'd expect from a dairy-laden cake. Don't be put off - it is delicious! Use regular full-fat mayonnaise for best results.
Hello there has it got to be mayonnaise that you use ? - 13 Jun 2012
This is not actually dairy free, as mayonnaise has eggs in, and eggs are classed as dairy. - 15 Feb 2015
Tastes like chocolate cake from a mix - no one knew the difference - it was moist and tasted even better the next day. I did increase cocoa to almost 2/3 cup (and could have added more), used only 1 cup mayo (definitely does not need more than this) and increased vanilla to 2tsp., also added 1/4 tsp salt (I find chocolate flavor is always stronger with a little salt in recipe). Hope this helps. - 31 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
