Super Moist Chocolate Cake

This is the moistest chocolate cake I've ever made, and it's super easy! The secret is to pull it out of the oven before it's over done (when a few crumbs stick to an inserted toothpick).

2 c. all purpose flour
1 1/4 c. sugar
3/4 t. baking soda
3/4 c. cocoa powder
1 1/4 c. water
1 c. mayonnaise
1 T. vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease an 8-inch cake pan. (This only makes one cake, so if you want a layer cake, you need to double the recipe)
2. Whisk together the flour, sugar & baking soda. In a separate bowl, whisk the cocoa & water together. Whisk in the mayo & vanilla. Stir the mayo mixture into the flour mixture.
3. Bake for 35-40 minutes.
