A few notes:

  • If desired, you can make this in a 9 x 13 baking instead. Simply increase your baking time to 35 minutes.
  • The amount of frosting for this will probably be a bit much for a 9 x 13 pan. If so, keep any leftover frosting in a covered container in the refrigerator.

I've got a near-identical recipe from my food and nutrition classes back in the day. Real back in the day. The more things change...! Both are hands down two of the moistest, chocolatiest I've ever had. And a cinch to pull together. Total keepers Btw, no mayonnaise no probs. Sour cream also does the job.
