Love mayonnaise cake. My grandmother gave me the recipe when I got married in 1966. Baked it often for our air force friends.

3 cups unsifted flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Grease 2 (9 x 1 1/2-inch) layer pans (note- I use a 9 x 13 pan); line bottoms with waxed paper.
Sift together dry ingredients into large bowl. Stir in Real Mayonnaise. Gradually stir in water and vanilla until smooth and blended. Pour into prepared pans. Bake in 350 (moderate) oven about 30 minutes or until cake springs back when touched. Cool "Remove from pans.
