If I knew you were coming, I'd have baked a cake.

Let's see, I do know she is arriving soon~so I'm baking a cake!! I don't want to toil away in the Cocina while she is visiting so I'm getting ready! What would be great for a South of the Border Patti visit? I believe good old fashioned Chocolate!!!


2 c. flour
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
4 tbsp. cocoa
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. water
1 c. mayonnaise
1 tbsp. Mexican vanilla
Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl. Add the water and beat 1 minute. Add the mayonnaise and beat 1 minute. Add the vanilla and beat 1 minute.
Pour into a greased and floured pan, 13 x 9 inch square for a very high cake. *Sprinkle with chopped nuts and chocolate bits as frosting, or frost later. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
