"Don't wreck a sublime chocolate experience by feeling guilty.
Chocolate isn't like premarital sex. It will not make you pregnant.
And it always feels good."

Mammy's Chocolate
Mayonnaise Cake

"I can still remember how shocked my grandmother was the
day she discovered this recipe in a magazine ad: 'They've
got to be kidding! Mayonnaise in a chocolate cake?!?!?'
She was determined to try it, of course. We all raved about
it and begged for more.
It soon became a go-to chocolate cake recipe in our family,
right up there with Great Aunt Ruby's Devil's Food Cake.
It is now a beloved recipe in many a Southern household!
I have the recipe on a 3x5 card in my grandmother's hand--
writing. She didn't bother to specify Hellman's mayo since
that's the brand she always bought..."  

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3 large eggs
1 2/3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup mayonnaise
1 1/3 cups cold water

12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour two 9-inch round cake
pans; line the bottoms with wax paper. Onto a piece of wax paper sift
the flour, cocoa, baking soda and baking powder.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer on high, beat the eggs, sugar and
vanilla extract for 5 minutes or until fluffy. Reduce the speed to low and
blend in the mayonnaise. Using a wooden spoon stir the flour mixture
into the egg mixture, 1/3 at a time, alternating with the water and begin-
ning and ending with the flour. Divide the batter evenly between the
pans and bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center
comes out with moist crumbs. Cool the cake in the pan on a rack for
10 minutes.  Turn out onto the rack, peel off the paper, and let stand 5
minutes more.
Frosting: While the cake cools, in a small saucepan stir the chocolate
chips over moderately low heat until melted. Remove from heat and stir
in the sour cream and vanilla. Ice the cake between the layers, on the
sides, and on top with the chocolate frosting, then drizzle the melted
chocolate in a decorative pattern.
