This is very close to the one I've been making for over 30 years from my mother's old Tupperware cookbook. The only difference is the Tupperware recipe adds 1/2 teaspoon of salt and uses 1/2 cup cocoa powder instead of 1/4 cup, giving it a rich chocolate taste. I use Kraft Light Mayo, and it works well in this recipe, yet saves me half the fat and calories of regular mayo. I saved ynathan85's recipe with my revisions so I can put all my favorite recipes in one book and finally get rid of all the cookbooks!

I did not like this cake. The texture of the cake is hard to describe. It was, another reviewer said "gummy" and the flavor was just okay.

This is a form of the original Waldorf Astoria cake. Better when baked in a 9x9 brownie pan.For a richer chocolate use 1/2 cup cocoa powder. Top with vanilla ice cream or real whipped cream.

My mother used to make this cake all of the time. It's such an easy recipe, yet I cannot remember it! It made me extremely happy to find it here, as my mother passed away a few years ago and I can't just call her up and ask her how to make it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I grew up on this cake!!! It is the most moist cake I have found! A lot of people still have not had this type a cake yet. It is better if recipe is doubled.

Very moist. I remember this from the '70's, what a nice memory making this cake was. Thank you for this.

This is a childhood memory cake...was looking for the recipe. But the 1/2 cup of cocoa is a must for this recipe, to give it the childhood taste. Thank you very much for this recipe!!!! :)))))

This chocolate cake reminds me of a cake my SIL used make years ago. It was good and chocolately. I used Wedding Cake Frosting and tinted Neon Green and Navy Blue, Seattle Seahawks colors.
