RE: RECIPE: Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

It was one of those things people made during WW II when fats were rationed. It was used as a substitute for Crisco or butter or margerine. During that period, people didn't bake much because butter, sugar margerine, crisco lard were all rationed. So people made do. This cake uses chocolate to hide the mayonaise, there is another recipe for a spice cake.
It's one of those recipes best forgotten, it was made when the proper ingredients weren't to be had....not because it tastes best it's not too bad....better than no birthday cake at all!

I tasted one a few years ago & it was really moist and good. I didn't get the recipe, though.

One of my Aunts used to make this for us and we loved it.
I still make it from time to time when I need a 9x13" cake but since there are only the two of us now, I make one that one of my patients gave me a number of years ago and it is a nice 8x8" cake.

It's my daughter's favorite cake and she asked for it every birthday (with 7-minute frosting). In fact, I made cupcakes with caramel icing at Thanksgiving.
