You should consider baking someone you love a Mayonnaise
Chocolate Cake just like this one here. A cake that is all a chocolate cake should
be – dark, rich and moist. A mayonnaise cake that makes people ooh and aah.
A great substitute cake using mayonnaise instead of the eggs and oil.
2 cups Flour
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Cocoa
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1 1/2 tsp Baking soda
1 cup + 2 Tb Ice water
Oven Temp ~ 350°
Baking Time ~
Pan Type ~ 13 x 9 x 2 inch cake pan
Sift together the first four
ingredients. Add the ice water and vanilla. When mixed
thoroughly, fold in the mayonnaise. If you're using a mixer, fold the
mayonnaise in by hand. Stir just until mixed, do not over beat.
Pour Mayonnaise Chocolate Cake batter into prepared pan and bake.
Mayonnaise cake is done when it starts to pull away from the sides of the pan and the top starts to crack; you can also use a toothpick test, do not overcook.
1/2 cup Butter
1 lb Powdered sugar
1/2 cup Cocoa
2 Tb Milk
1 tsp Vanilla
Cream the butter, 1/2 sugar and salt. Mix in the cocoa and 1 tablespoon milk.
Add sugar and milk until the consistency is right and then beat at mixer's highest speed. Frost cake immediately.
It's also a very easy cake, you can make it in one bowl with a wooden spoon. Be sure to use real mayonnaise (not light) and cold water so that the mayonnaise doesn't separate. The mayonnaise is in place of the shortening and eggs.
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
