IN my family this cake is also known as war time cake. I was a child during WWII but still remember my Mother making this cake as a treat, when eggs, butter and sugar were rationed. It’s rich and moist, a little goes a long way and it has been fail proof.

Will try a glass pan next time as it over baked on the sides and dropped in the middle when I used a square metal pan.

My grandma used to make mayonnaise cake for all of my birthdays, so thought I'd try this recipe. This was good, but I could taste the baking soda. I'd cut back on that. I also doubled the frosting, as I took the cake out of the pan and frosted the entire cake. It came out great.
