Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

This is a cake said to have originated during WWII due to rationing.  The mayonnaise or salad dressing replaces eggs and oil in a traditional recipe.  It is a very moist cake which can easily be used for cupcakes as I did today.

Cream together:
1 cup mayo/salad dressing
1 cup sugar
1 cup warm water
1 t vanilla

Add in:
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
2 t baking soda

Optional Topping:
I put some mini chocolate chips on top before baking.

Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes

I use Miracle Whip Salad Dressing.
This time around I doubled the recipe.
It gave me 12 regular and 6 large muffins, and 1 medium bread pan.
