Let's Eat Cake...Yum!

As part of the Mother’s Day Garden Party, the ladies at Make Mine Pink are sponsoring a Recipe Exchange today! In honor of my Mom, I wanted to share one of her recipes. When you look at the title, you will probably have the same reaction I had as a kid…. A cake made with MAYONNAISE??? At first, I refused to try it. How could anything yummy be made with mayonnaise? But the rich chocolaty goodness won out and soon I was eating and enjoying every yummy, moist, delicious bite. The mayonnaise is the secret to the moistness! Try it, you’ll be hooked too, and it will be fun to tell your family and friends the delicious cake they just ate is made with MAYONNAISE! Enjoy!

Mayonnaise Cake

2 Cups Flour 1 Cup Mayonnaise
1 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Water
2 tsp Soda 1 tsp Vanilla
½ Cup Cocoa ¼ tsp Salt

Mix dry ingredients together and add both wet ingredients, mixing until there are no lumps remaining. Bake in a greased cake pan at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Easy!

Not one soul is afraid of Mayo in my house all the guys love it on everything!..and remember all mayo is is oil and eggs!!! It is a perfect subsitute when you run out of eggs in recipes...I use it in my ground turkey meatloaf! Super moist!
Thanks for the wonderful cake recipe, I will give it a try, who can resist Chocolate?

The thought of mayo in a cake does not sound at all appealing, but the fact there is chocolate there is enough to entice me to try it! Let me know when you make the next one, and I'll be right over. I'll bring the coffee!
