Every recipe has a story to tell. This cake was named after the amount an unsuspecting lady paid for it while dining at the Waldorf Astoria. She couldn’t pass on the Chocolate Cake. (Can you blame her?) It was so good she asked the Chef if she could get a copy of the recipe. He obliged and mailed it to her (along with an invoice attached for $100.) Lucky for us I found it on the web searching for the perfect chocolate cake for our daughter’s baby shower. I was intrigued that it didn’t call for eggs; mayonnaise takes its place. This cake could become your go-to chocolate cake recipe like it is now mine. It’s so easy! Not intended for a breakfast meal substitute!
