  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Cover bottoms of 2 (9-inch) round pans with parchment; spray sides of pans with cooking spray. Beat eggs in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating until thick and lemon coloured. Add mayonnaise and vanilla; mix well.
  • Combine flour, 3/4 cup cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add to egg mixture; mix until blended. Gradually add hot water, beating after each addition until well blended. Pour into prepared pans.
  • Bake 30 to 35 min. or until toothpick inserted in centres comes out clean. Cool 10 min. Remove cakes from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Melt semi-sweet chocolate as directed on package. Add to butter and remaining cocoa powder in large bowl; beat with mixer until blended. Gradually beat in icing sugar. Add milk; mix well.
  • Stack cake layers on plate, spreading 3/4 cup icing between layers. Frost top and side of cake with remaining icing.

Size Wise

This is an indulgent dessert for special occasions. Watch your serving size.


For a mocha-flavoured cake, substitute hot brewed strong Maxwell House Coffee for the hot water.
