Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
5 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup cold water
1 teaspoon vanilla

Sift together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda. Add mayonnaise, cold water and vanilla. Beat with an electric hand mixer on low for 2 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees in two greased, wax paper lined 8 inch round cake pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes. (I bake these cakes for 25 minutes in my oven).

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Yield: 2 cups

2-1/2 sifted powdered sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 T. water
¼ c. granulated sugar
¼ t. salt
½ c. shortening
