Mayonnaise Cake  
My family got into the mayonnaise cake craze when it was going around in the early seventies--it was nice and moist. Here's one version:

A chocolate mayonnaise cake, made with mayonnaise in place of eggs and oil.

* 2 cups flour
* 1/2 cup cocoa
* 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup sugar
* 3/4 cup mayonnaise
* 1 cup water
* 1 teaspoon vanilla

Sift together the flour, cocoa, soda and salt. Cream together the sugar, mayonnaise, water and vanilla. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture; stir until well blended. Pour batter into greased and floured layer cake pans (or a 9- x 13-inch pan). Bake at 350°F. for about 25 minutes.

We always made a hot cocoa icing to go on top.
