Triple Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

I was looking at the file photos of my unpublished recipes and lo and behold I found a few digital copies of this chocolate cake. I was surprised that I haven’t shared this yet after nearly a year of making this. I recall baking this for a kind friend and neighbor who helped us paint our house last year before we moved to Connecticut. I made him chocolate cake whenever he was over at our place because I know that it is his favorite dessert.

I guess it must have been the crazy busy-ness of the move that I thereafter forgot about some recipes that I made last year which have yet to grace this blog. Oh well, I am rectifying that mistake and sharing today this classic southern cake before I forget about it again! Being the chocoholic that I am, I added more chocolate to the mix – apart from cocoa powder you have extra chocolate goodness from the semi-sweet choco chips and to top it off – a dark chocolate ganache for the ultimate chocolate indulgence! Whether you wish to go all the way by adding all the chocolate flavors in there or you simply want a subtle chocolate taste, you will enjoy this moist cake!


  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon instant Coffee
  • A pinch of Salt
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup Water
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Chips

For the Chocolate Filling

  • Use either your favorite store-bought chocolate frosting (I used one when I first made this cake) or your favorite homemade recipe, if you have one. If you need one for the filling – here’s a good and very easy recipe. This is for a full entire cake (not just for cake filling) so I suggest cutting the recipe in half and adjusting the sugar and chocolate content to your taste. Use the filling/frosting when making the cake in 2 pans.

For the Dark Chocolate Ganache (use milk chocolate if that is preferred)

  • 4 oz Dark eating Chocolate (65-70%), broken into pieces
  • 4 oz Heavy Cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey, Corn, Agave or Maple syrup or your favorite liquid sweetener (adjust sweetness to taste)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter 2 round cake pans (9-inch ones) and line with parchment paper.
  2. Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, coffee and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
