Wow!! I have never used mayo in cakes before, but it is incredibly good! I didn't make cupcakes, I used two cake pans and made a layer cake. The batter was delicious, but the baked cake had a weird smell to it, so I was a bit skeptical. But don't let the smell fool you, this cake is amazing! I didn't have grape jelly, because I can't stand that stuff, so I used "Simply Fruit Black Cherry" instead (I think that's jam?). And I used cake flour, since I just discovered cake flour and I like experimenting with it.
I did put chocolate chips in it, as someone else suggested, but I think it threw off the texture, so next time I'll skip them.
This cake is not all that sweet, which I really like. No sugar coma here. The flavor is rich and chocolatey, the texture is soft, moist and fluffy, with just the right amount of density.
I didn't make the caramel frosting, I used the whipped cream cream cheese frosting from this site, and the combination is out of this world. This chocolate cake with that frosting turned into a delicious, not too sweet, and surprisingly light layer cake.
I will make this over and over and over. And it is so quick and easy to make! Cake heaven.
