The first time I recall Mom making this (I was probably 8) I was totally grossed out by the idea of putting MAYONNAISE in a cake! The taste got me over that issue, REALLY fast!
Lorraine makes this cake relatively often (she’s the baker in the house) and discovered some years back that it makes fantastic cupcakes. It’s a really good cake!
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1-1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup cold water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 5 Tbsp cocoa
Mix all ingredients well. Place in a greased & floured 9″ x 13″ cake pan. Bake at 350 F for 38 minutes.
This recipe also works well for cupcakes. Bake cupcakes for 15 minutes.
