I grew up on this cake! My brother's favorite. He called it "Chocolate inside, chocolate outside" cake. Any frosting can be used though. For people who don't do mayo, you'll never know the difference!!

    My mother made a mayonnaise chocolate cake with chocolate frosting when I was a teen, now 56 yrs. old. When ever I eat cake, box mixes, store bought, or homemade cakes you always need something to drink with them. Their usually hard to swallow. But when I first tasted it, I didn't need anything to drink with it. Putting mayonnaise in with the batter makes a very moist cake that you can swallow without trying to force it down by swallowing & swallowing. I told my mother that was the only cake to ever make again. And just put different type of frostings, on it, vanilla, cream cheese, or what ever you think you might like on yours.

    I grew up on this recipe too!!! it is easy, fast, great tasting and cheap to make!!! As a kid, when I would tell people it was made with mayonnaise, they would turn up their noses until they tried it!!! It brings back many memories and it is wonderful to see that others were able to enjoy this recipe as well growing up!!
