Chocolate Mayo Cake

Chocolate Mayo Cake
This is was known as the Depression Chocolate Cake. I always loved it. You cannot tell that it has mayo in it. I made it from time to time when you kids were young. LHT (your Dad) really doesn't like dark chocolate cake. He would rather have a white cake with chocolate frosting. But, wow, I do (did).
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups water
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease two 9 inch layer pans or one 13X9 pan. Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa, and sugar into a large bowl. Stir in mayonnaise. Gradually add water and vanilla and blend until smooth. Pour batter into prepared pans. Bake at 350 degrees 30 minutes. Cool, remove from pans, and frost with your favorite chocolate frosting.
