Just to say how thrilled I was at the way this cake turned out.  I normally have no luck with cakes.  Unless it is a very rich fruit cake they always collapse in the centre.  I do keep trying new recipes all the time but without great hope.  They usually taste great but, without exception, flop.  Sad

But for our Silver wedding anniversary I made bethntim's mayonnaise cake and it was wonderful, such a success. I didn't have a ring cake tin so instead used two victoria sandwich tins. Also I used self-raising flour.  As you can see all this did not affect the success of the recipe. It rose beautifully and was so moist and chocolatey. I can't praise it enough.  At last I have found a cake that works.



Many many thanks bethntim.

Ha, ha, ha...you reminded me of my "poop cake". Everything flopped on that one. I was taking it to a friends house and his Mom and I were going to decorate it. Well, between the refrigeration, and fixing the frosting half asleep, and a bit of wine..... you can just imagine. Her and I were laughing so hard in the kitchen, that the boys left the ball game TV show to find out what the heck we were doing!!! It tasted grand and we had fun, so that was all that counts. Yours looks like it turned out proper. Glad you had success!!!! Grin
