Beautiful texture, light, fluffy, moist and delicious! It's all there in every bite, and the Fluffy Cool Whip Frosting was an added bonus because it really brought out the flavor of the cake. Yup, a little bit of heaven in my mouth!
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray with cooking spray or grease and flour 13x9 inch baking pan or 2-9" round pans.
In a mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add mayonnaise, vanilla and water. Beat until smooth and well-blended, about 2 minutes on medium.
Pour batter into a prepared pan(s).
Bake at 350' for 28-30 minutes (9" round pans) or 30-35 minutes (13x9"). Cake is done when middle springs back when touched or toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Careful not to over-bake or it will be dry.
Cool before frosting with your favorite Buttercream, 7-Minute Frosting or Chocolate Frosting...or just dollop with whipped cream and confectioners' sugar. The cake is the star!
For Frosting: Combine pudding, confectioners' sugar and milk in bowl; beat for about a minute. Fold in whipped topping.
