2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup mayonnaise
1 1/3 cup water


Grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans. Combine first four ingredients, set aside.

In another bowl, beat eggs, sugar, and vanilla at high speed until creamy, about 3 minutes. On low speed, beat in mayonnaise until smooth.

Add flour mixture and water to mayonnaise mixture alternately in four additions, ending with the flour mixture.

Pour into pans and bake 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees F. Cool ten minutes in pans before turning out to cool completely. Frost as desired.

This is the first mayonnaise cake I've tried but I'm sold! I can't believe how good it was! I'm going to make another one soon.

We have made this in my family for many years. We also use regular Miracle Whip and 1 tsp vanilla.
This cake is so easy to make and very tasty.

I did not make the cake as indicated in this recipe, but the $100 cake has been a favorite in our family and extended family for over 50 years.
The differences are as follows:
-We use regular Miracle Whip instead of light
-Use cold coffee (brewed or instant) instead of water
-Increase vanilla to 1 teaspoon

We have a recipe from an older magazine that is the same with the exception that it calls for 4 eggs. This cake turns out noticeably richer than the 3 egg version.

question or comment
Does anyone out there have the original Mayonnaise Cake recipe? I keep trying to duplicate my grandmother's recipe (which has been lost) but I can't do it!
Thanks so much

Yes, the orginal Best Foods Chocolate Mayo cake is very good. I called Best Foods to see how the texture was compared to the original recipe w/o eggs and they advised me to make it and determine that myself. I'll just stick with my 40 year old works!
