When I was growing up in Tennessee, this was my most favorite chocolate cake.  The mayonnaise Mayonnaise Cakegives it a subtle flavor that you cannot find with anything else.    I ate this cake carefully, completely dissolving each bite in my mouth to get as much flavor as I could out of every bit.     I'll bet you will too.

If you want to be completely decadent, serve a nice piece of this cake topped with some really good vanilla ice cream.
