Did you know you can make a cake with MAYONNAISE!? It’s true!
Here’s the recipe from texascooking.com:
Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake
Rich and moist, this old favorite can be slimmed down by using reduced calorie mayonnaise, although the final result won’t be quite as moist.
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cocoa, firmly packed
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup mayonnaise
1-1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350°F, and grease and flour two 8-inch cake pans.
In a small bowl, pour the boiling water over the cocoa, and stir until smooth. Set aside.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the mayonnaise and sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the vanilla and cocoa mixture, beating until incorporated.
With mixer at low speed, gradually add the flour mixture, beating just until batter is combined.
Pour batter into prepared pans, and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks. Allow to cool completely before frosting.
I’m going to make one tonight. I’ll post photos for you tomorrow. I’ll also force my co-workers to eat it and post their reviews as well. You can’t make a cake with Belle and Sebastian.
