That sounds like the recipe I have tried to find again for years.. I remember it called for hot water at the end. I will make this tomorrow.
This is just like the one my aunt used to make. Do remember to add the 2 cups of flour, too.

I have a recipe for One Bowl Chocolate cake that has a cup of boiling water added at the end. If this isn't the recipe you were searching for, it me know & I'll dig that one out,

Thank you. Will do. I have searched for my old recipe but most of the recipes called for extra oil and\or eggs which I know mine didn't have. Mayo is eggs and oil
That recipe card looks like mine! Haven't had the heart to throw them away, they're antique now I guess!
Great recipe!

Is this an 8x8 pan? Square?
8x8 or 9x13 depends on the thickness you prefer. I rarely frost my chocolate cakes as I like them fairly thin topped with a scoop of coffee ice cream.
Got this recipe from my sister (now deceased), and misplaced it during several moves. Glad to get it again! Caution though: Cake doesn't taste as good as my sister's...I used Miracle Whip, which is salad dressing and not mayonnaise. We used MW growing up. I thought it was the same thing. Great tasting for sandwiches and potato salad, but NOT necessarily good for chocolate mayonnaise cake, however!!
