Yep, I know. This cake recipe sounds funny. However, just so you know, it is truly chocolaty, and moist. Yes, it has Miracle Whip in it. The stuff you slather on your sandwich or toss into your salad. Sounds funky? Yes. Decadent and absolutely delish? YES.
You can rest assured that you won’t taste Miracle Whip in the final cake. The cake is not too rich nor is it too sweet, but the icing contributes to the sweet chocolaty punch to it. It’s just plain heavenly.
