Check out post #14 for the recipe.

My mistake. Add to the recipe's dry ingredients, 4 tbs. cocoa powder. Sorry 'bout that.

Ohhh you have brought back many memories of my Mother's Choco-mayo cake.She always won our school's cake contests, for the most moist and tasty cake.She called it
"Just a tad special, choco cake" that it was.Thanks for the reminder to look up her recipe and make it soon.Plus, I will be trying yours as well.

Oh, Yeahhhhh. I went to school in a small town in NE Oklahoma and the ladies in the cafeteria made this all the time. They called it wacky cake. We'd skip out of basketball practice early and slip into the cafeteria and they'd always hold back a piece for us, if we hadn't scarfed up the cake at lunch, that is. This was back in the early 1960's. Those were fun times.... ...... ........................ Oh! Well anyway, what's to be squeamish about? What's mayo made of? Eggs, oil, vinegar, salt. Hardly anything else. Be sure to use REAL mayo. Miracle Whip will work but won't be as good.

I received an email on the 17th asking that I correct the recipe. On the 16th, I had already put in a post with the correction, but not in the whole recipe listing. So, here is the corrected recipe, in its entirety.

Chocolate-Mayonaise Cake
Dry Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tbs. Hershey's Cocoa Powder
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking soda (bicarbonate of soda)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder (Clabber Girl or Calumet brand)

Wet Ingredients:
1 cup mayonaise
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup water

Preheat oven to 350' F.
Whisk to gether the dry ingredients in a large glass or stainless steel bowl. Mix the vanilla extract with the water. Add the water mixture and mayonaise to the dry ingredents and whisk with a balloon whisk until all is smooth. Pour into a greased and floured 10" cake pan or a 9"X16" rectangular cake pan and bake for 30 minutes. Test by inserting either a clean butter knife or toothpick into the cake center. If it comes out clean, remove from the oven and cool as it is done. If it needs more cooking, increasae the time by 10 minute intervals until the cake is done.

Sorry about the mix-up. Now you can enjoy this wonderful cake. But I wonder, if you substituted vanilla, or a flavoring such as butterscotch, or rum extract, or almond extract, etc. how would the cake turn out then?

"Green Lady" - "Post #14" didn't mention any chocolate either - lol - so don't know what you were referring to!!!

But thanks GoodWeed for adding the chocolate ingredient to your lovely recipe. Sounds absolutely fabulous!

Yes, I posted 8 T. cocoa in my version of the recipe, which is roughly double the amount of GoodWeed's. The cocoa is the chocolate.......

Right now I am pre-heating my oven to make this cake for my family to enjoy this weekend. I am sure they will enjoy. I can't imagine why I never made it for them before. I am really glad GoodWeed started this thread. I've been thinking about this cake all week. Unfortunately, I have allergies to wheat so will have to get by on a few crumbs and the aroma.

Those are adorable.

The recipe I posted in #14 mentioned using a large pan, 16 x 20, I think. I instead used 2 - 9x13's and baked for 30-35 min. Turned out nicely. I used Dutch chocolate because that is what I had on hand. Next time I will use the Hersey brand.
