Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake
Before you cringe and say "ewww" you have to try this super easy, super moist, super delicious chocolate cake. My mother used to make it when I was a kid. It was her standard chocolate cake. Really, the mayo just replaces the eggs and oil in a normal cake recipe. Sorry I didn't take a pic of it sliced. It was gorgeous.
My favorite version (and what is pictured) is to split the two layers into four and use a yummy peanut butter cream cheese icing (8 oz cream cheese, 8 oz peanut butter and 2 lbs of confectioners sugar plenty left over for eating after it sits in the fridge for a day! It's like truffles).
makes 2 -9 inch round layers
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups water
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9 inch layer pans.
Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa, and sugar into a large bowl. Stir in mayonnaise. Gradually add water and vanilla and blend until smooth. Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Cool, remove from pans, and frost with your favorite chocolate frosting.
