Mayonnaise Cake

Mayonnaise Cake

Now I know that the title of this recipe sounds interesting but hang with me and trust me that this is a really good cake. This is another one of the desserts that my Mamaw was known for too. I love to make things that are not of the norm and with Valentines Day coming I thought this might be something different to make rather than a regular chocolate cake.

2 Cup Flour
1 Cup Sugar
2 tsp Baking Soda
Dash of Salt
4T. Cocoa
1 Cup Mayonnaise
1 Cup Cold Water
1 Tsp Vanilla

Mix the dry ingredients together first: 2 C flour, 1 C sugar, 2 tsp baking soda, dash of salt, 4 T cocoa. Then add the 1C cold water, 1 tsp Vanilla, and then 1C Mayonnaise. Heat oven to 350 degrees and bake for one hour. **All ovens run differently and I only baked mine for about 35 minutes. I would start checking it at the 30 minute mark. Stick a knife or toothpick and make sure nothing sticks to it.

Let cool all the way before serving. You may serve with or without icing. The mayonnaise is an agent to make it real moist.

  1. My grandmother used to fix this but I've never tried it. I think someone would have to give me a bite without telling me what it was before I could ever give it a chance. Mayo = Yuck!
