Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Sweet Saturdays - Cake

THE ULTIMATE CHOCOLATE CAKE

(This can be made from scratch or combined with a cake mix. This is the faster version.)

1 pk. (18 1/2 oz.) chocolate cake mix with pudding in the mix
1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa
3 eggs
1 cup mayonaise
1 1/3 cup water
bag chocolate chips

Grease and flour 2 (9") layer cake pans. In large bowl at low speed, beat cake mix and cocoa. Add remaining ingredients, beat until blended. Beat at medium speed 2 minutes. Pour into pans. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. When cool remove from pans and frost with chocolate frosting. Enjoy!

  2. Okay first I have to say-- holy smoke, this cake sounds delicious.

    And secondly, thanks so much for your comment over at 5minutesforbooks. I feel honored that my amateur review was the first you've read for this book, but I do hope you get to read it soon-- I so absolutely ate that book up.

    Happy holidays and happy reading!

  5. Sounds delish, though I've never heard of mayo in a cake. That's interesting.

  6. Here we go again - Tag you're it for a bookshelf meme. You know I don't know how to make links in a comment, so just go to my blog and copy questions, I guess.
