In a medium bowl, stir flour, cocoa, baking soda and baking powder;
In a large bowl with mixer at high speed, beat eggs, sugar and
vanilla, scraping bowl occasionally, 3 minutes or until light and
fluffy. Reduce speed to low; beat in mayonnaise until blended. Add
flour mixture in 4 additions alternately with water, beginning and
ending with flour. Pour into prepared pans.
