Delish Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake!
This chocolate cake recipe with mayonnaise and cocoa powder is real...real lovin' from the oven!
Discovered and baked this cake last night from 111 Favorites: Pleasant Grove Presbyterian Church Women (April, 1956) that was created by the women of the church and handed down to me from my Grandma Katie. Mrs John DeWitt shared this super easy chocolate mayonnaise cake recipe - I added the raspberry frosting and chocolate sprinkles ;)
Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake
Ingredients and Method:
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
pinch of salt
1 cup cold water
1 cup mayonnaise (recipe said Miracle Whip salad dressing, not sure how that would taste...??)
Preheat oven to 350°. Sift all dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Then add water and mayonnaise, beat for 2 minutes. Put in greased baking pan and bake for 30 - 40 minutes. (Layer cake**)
**I used a bundt pan; greased and lightly floured. Added half of the batter, sliced a medium banana over batter and then topped with the remaining batter. Baked per above.
The consistency of this chocolate mayonnaise cake is dense, more like a pound cake. Rather then frosting this cake you could sprinkle it with powdered sugar once it has cooled. If you bake it as a layer cake use your imagination for fillings and frosting.
