This may sound wierd but this is the best chocolate cake ever. You can't taste the mayonaise at all. It replaces the eggs and oil which is really all mayonaise is.
Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake
2 cups flour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
4 TBS cocoa
¾ cup Best Foods mayonnaise
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
½ tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 F
Mix dry ingredients together, then add mayonnaise and mix together.
Add vanilla and water a little at a time, until everything is mixed together well.
Grease (or grease and flour) two 9” or 8” baking pans. Pour in batter and bake for 40 to 50 min. Until toothpick comes out clean in center. Cool and frost with white or vanilla frosting, homemade is better.
There is a easier version on the back of the Best Foods mayonnaise jar that uses a box chocolate cake mix that’s very good, but the homemade one is the best.
Today is National Chocolate Cupcake Day. Do you have a favorite recipe or method for these?
No. I just use cake mix to make mine. I making some today for a bake sale at church. The only thing I am doing different is only adding one egg, the rest egg beaters.
