This chocolate cake is a classic in Carol’s family and she recently made it for her brother’s birthday.  It may sound strange to use mayonnaise in a cake until you recall that the two principal ingredients in mayonnaise, oil and eggs, are common cake ingredients.


3 cups cake flour

1-1/2 cups sugar

1 Tbs. baking soda

6 Tbs cocoa

1-1/2 cups mayonnaise

1-1/2 cups water

1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and cocoa.  Add the wet ingredients and mix until there are no lumps.m pour the batter into two 9-inch cake pans or one jelly roll pan.  Bake about 45 minutes until a toothpick put into the cake will come out clean.

Cool cake and frost with chocolate icing.  This cake will taste better on the second day.
