Chocolate MAYONNAISE Cake

My mom used to make this cake when I was a kid. It was a favorite then and a favorite now. The mayonnaise adds a very moist texture to this dense and delicious masterpiece.

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake
2 c. flour
2/3 c. cocoa
1 1/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1 2/3 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 1/3 c. water

Grease and flour bottoms of 2 round cake pans. In a medium bowl mix first 4 ingredient together. IN a large mixing bowl beat next 3 ingredient for 3-5 minutes until light and fluffy. Beat in mayonnaise on low. Add flour mixture and water alternately. Pour in prepared pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Cool, then place pans with cake in the freezer until frozen. Remove from pans and frost as desired.
