Aunt Deanie’s Chocolate Cake

The best chocolate cake you'll ever eat!

Aunt Deanie's chocolate cake is rich, dark and fabulous!  Super easy, you can serve this plain, with a little powdered sugar or try chocolate butter cream.  Top with cream cheese frosting for a crowd-pleasing dessert!


1 c. sugar
4 heaping Tbsp. cocoa
2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. cold water
2 c. flour
1 c. mayonnaise
1 tsp. vanilla


Blend sugar with cocoa in large mixing bowl or stand mixer.  Add mayo & vanilla and mix.  Combine flour and baking soda in separate bowl.  Add dry ingredients along with water, alternating between additions.  End with flour.

Bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes.  When done, toothpick inserted in center will be clean.  Makes 2 - 8" rounds or 9x13*.
