Are you making this? 
2 cups All purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp baking soda
6 tbsp cocoa
1 cup cold water
1 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip (not fat-free)

Original recipe makes 10 Servings



Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate bowl whisk water and mayo together. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix well until there are no lumps. You can do this with an electric beater, but I just do it with a wooden spoon.

Pour into a bundt pan sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake at 350F for 42 to 45 minutes.

If using a 9 x 13 pan, bake at 350F for 35 to 40 min. If making cupcakes, bake at 350F for 22 to 25 minutes.

Remove from pan to a cooling rack and cool completely before icing. This cake is so moist that icing isn't needed for anything other than decoration.

Good, easy & quick- yes. Wish it had WAY more flavor though, I might add vanilla extract if I make it again.
