It does call for cocoa. Didn't notice it was missing but remember the mayo part. Good call Breezy.

I just dug out my aunt's Mayonaisse Cake recipe. The ingredients are roughly the same as what Goodweed posted, but roughly doubled. Here is my Auntie Evie's recipe for Mayonaisse Cake:

4 c. flour 1/2 t. salt
2 c. sugar 2 c. mayo
8 T. cocoa 2 c. water
4 t. soda 2 t. vanilla

Mix all in bowl. Blend well. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 min, in a 16 x 20 pan.
Frost with favorite frosting. (I'm sure the pan should be greased or else use parchment paper)

The flavor was wonderful. I always thought the mayo brought out the flavor of the cocoa.

Well, the cake is really a nice moist, feather light cake..I'm not much of a baker, so I just grabbed some nice unsweetened dark cocoa and added half a cup to the sugar and flour gave them a whirl mixed in the rest of the ingredients and prayed real hard.. If I can bake this cake and not get a door stop, your all of you are gonna love it...It is a really nice cake even without frostingBoth a dab of whipped cream and/or ice cream work beautifully here.

Made your recipe into cupcakes for the kids. They enjoyed them topped with green peanut butter/cream cheese frosting as the witches' heads and chocolate coins with chocolate covered candy corns for the hats. Very cute and tasty treats. Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestions. Goodweed did say that the "cake is very rich and chocolatey", but doesn't mention adding any chocolate at all. Maybe he'll see this & amend the recipe? I'd love to try it as he described it. : )

That's exactly what I thought. I went through a couple of responses and nobody asked about the chocolate, and so I went back and looked again... I thought I was losing it!

We make a chocolate snack cake that uses mayo and I am continually amazed at the flavor. Like goodweed said, it is rich so we bipass the frosting for just powdered sugar ...
