Eggless Chocolate Cake

This is a cake we've been making for about 10 years now. It's so quick and simple and uses things we always have on hand. If you crave chocolate cake but don't have eggs or oil, don't worry, make this one.

I thought I added this one to the website a long time ago (I could have sworn it!) but I didn't see it listed in a quick scan of cakes so I'm going to post it again as I just made it this afternoon and snapped a quick picture of it. This cake is special to me for a reason other than it being my favorite chocolate cake... back when my husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary a neighbor was watching our three kids for us while we went to dinner and our 8 year old daughter went back to our home, dug out this recipe card and managed to make the entire thing, from scratch all by herself! We were so proud of her! She even decorated it. Every time I make this cake I smile with the memory.

Eggless Chocolate Cake

2 c flour
1 c sugar
1/4 t salt
1/3 c cocoa
1 t baking soda
1 c cold water
1 1/2 t vanilla
2/3 c mayonnaise

Mix the flour, sugar, salt, cocoa and baking soda in a bowl. Add the water, vanilla and mayonnaise. Mix with a wooden spoon, 100 strokes. Pour into 2 - 8" round pans that you have sprayed, lined with parchment paper and sprayed again. Bake 25 minutes at 350. Cool 5-10 minutes in the pan, remove and cool completely.

Spread with your favorite frosting. Our favorite for this particular cake is 7 Minute Frosting - I almost exclusively make it for this one!
