Mayonnaise Chocolate Cake is a community recipe submitted by JonMc and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.
- Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl.
- Add the water and beat 1 minute. Add the mayonnaise and beat 1 minute. Add the vanilla and beat 1 minute.
- Pour into a greased and floured pan, 13 x 9 inch square for a very high cake.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
Ice the cake as you choose, but I like the taste and visual contrast of a simple vanilla buttercream icing.
