Ok I finally made that cake! After reading many comments about the cake, I thought I would make my version. Some people said it smelled like mayonnaise and they threw the cake out without even trying it. Some said just the idea of mayonnaise in a cake made them sick! Taking all these comment’s into consideration I came up with a winning chocolate mayonnaise cake! Well to Ray and me anyways!! LOL!! Try it for yourself!!
Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup Hershey’s special dark cocoa powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1-1/4 cups water
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
Lightly spray a 8 or 9-inch square baking pan. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk the flour, sugar, and baking soda in a large bowl. In a separate bowl whisk the cocoa and water together until smooth. Whisk in the mayonnaise, and vanilla. Stir the mayonnaise mixture into the flour mixture until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes.
This cake is really dark and easy to over-bake. The cocoa powder I used is almost black, so watch it…
