Old-Fashioned Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake Recipe


Chocolate mayonnaise cake bakes up rich and moist. An easy cake to make, you can bake it in layers or as a sheet cake.

Here are all the dry ingredients. Sift together all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

You'll also need eggs, sugar, vanilla, boiling water, and instant coffee. And a cup of full-fat mayonnaise.

Whip eggs and sugar until thick and fluffy. Stir in mayonnaise, and alternate adding dry ingredients with water/coffee mixture.

Pour the batter into the pan (or pans), and bake until done. Allow your cake/s to cool completely.

The frosting is called "melted chocolate bar frosting." I added marshmallows and nuts to mine for rocky road, but you can also leave it plain.

Make the frosting by melting chocolate chips with butter. Whisk in sour cream and salt, and then beat in powdered sugar. You can make it by hand or in a mixer.

The cake and frosting are from the book "Cake, I Love You," by Jill O'Connor. It's an easy and delicious cake to make. Get the recipe below, and see the next slide for more cake recipes. Thank you!
