Edible. I reduced the mayo to 1 cup as recommended by others (to avoid gumminess), used extra dark cocoa powder, and a mix of cake flour and white wheat flour. Used Hellman's regular mayonnaise. (Would be good if all future reviewers would include type of mayo used, since they do vary widely.)
Results: crumbly (but moist) cake with a somewhat... odd flavor. Definitely not the best tasting cake I've ever had. Perhaps the white wheat flour didn't go well with the mayo... that's all I can figure.
I'm currently soaking the cake in a rum syrup to try to improve the flavor.
Oh, also added a few chocolate chips, which really seems to help.
