Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

Submitted by: DAKOTATURTLE
Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

Introduction

So very moist and NO ADDED eggs or oil!
Obviously mayo is made from eggs and oil. Also, I use Hellman's (Best Foods) Light Mayo but it is still pretty healthy with regular. Moistest cake ever though. The family loves it. For real decadence frost with Sander's Frosting. YUM!

Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    2 cups flour
    1/2 cup cocoa
    1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup sugar
    3/4 cup Hellman's (Best Foods) Light mayonnaise
    1 cup water
    1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions

1. Sift the flour, cocoa, soda and salt together. (I suggest not using a regular sifter as the cocoa does not come out well, use a strainer instead)
2. Cream the sugar, mayonnaise, water and vanilla together.
3. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and stir.
4. Pour batter into greased and floured 9 x 13 inch pan.
5. Bake at 350F. for about 25-30 minutes.

When serving cut into 12 pieces to get the nutritional info listed.

Serves 12 for 189.5 calories each. Since it is very rich a smaller piece satisfies. If you make cupcakes it will make 18-24 depending on size of tins.

Keep it covered tightly to retain its moistness. We eat it plain but you can sprinkle powdered sugar on it to make it fancier. Use a paper doily and sprinkle the powdered sugar through a sifter. Lift doily and you have a beautifully decorated cake.

    Be sure to wait till the cake is completely cooled - we had it while it was still a bit warm and there was a bit of a mayo aftertaste. The next day it was way better and just like chocolate cake out of the box, my husband loved it. - 1/17/09

    Just in case anyone needs to know, the recipe works with whole wheat pastry flour and Vegenaise (for those avoiding the eggs). I made it as cupcakes, and they crowned nicely.

    Pros: easy & quick to make, portion size is generous. Not really any cons (is it possible to say something bad about chocolate cake?!), but I didn't find it to be any more moist or delicious than a box mix. And you can make those healthy by substituting applesauce for oil and eggbeaters for eggs. - 3/25/09

    Made this tonight, but not sure if the high altitude I live in affected it... it didn't end up as moist as I thought. Was quite dry, so perhaps I need to either add something or reduce the cooking time??? Any ideas? I just don't want it to be to "gushy" if I reduce the time... Will try again... - 3/22/09

    Since I don't get or have ever seen Cook's Magazine I don't know if it is similar or not but I am not surprised. My great-grandmother made this cake and I still have her recipe. Where she got it I don't know but she and grandfather used to open the new restaurants in the "Grand Hotels" way back.

  • I made this despite many groans about using mayonaise and repeated assurances that no one would eat or like it! Needless to say it was GONE! I used a vegan recipe for some frosting and only frosted the middle and the top of the cake. - 5/31/10

  • I made cupcakes. I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of white flour. These came out tasting pretty good. My kids usually hate anything with whole wheat flour in it, so I'll see how they like them. I thought they were very good!! - 4/20/10

    I will make this cake for my daughters birthday on the weekend but I wanted to try my frosting info. from eat clean use a little icing sugar and yogurt cheese instead of cream cheese but from the comments it might be too decadent. - 3/24/10

    I agree that the cake was a bit dry, but it's alright and good for a low cal cake. I used 3/4cup Splenda and also added 1/4cup unsweetened shredded coconut. Also instead of 1cup water, I used 1/2cup water and 1/2 cup almond milk. - 3/13/10

  • This cake turned out to be simply wonderful. When i first read the recipe i was a little nervous about using mayo thinking it would make the cake taste funny but it turned out really good! Thanks

    Sincerely,

  • Easy to make. Taste was ok, like a protein bar. Consistency was thick. After taste testing, I decided icing was needed. - 11/1/09

    This cake is good but it did turn out dry. There may be 2 reasons for this: 1) I used Splenda and 2) I used 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour.
    I will try to make with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup Splenda and add some applesauce. I will come back and post here to let everyone know how it worked. - 10/15/09

    Mine came out a little dry, but maybe that's because I used all whole wheat flour. I made them in cupcake tins and they came out more muffin-y than cake-like. Still enjoyable, and the recipe halved well. - 8/1/09

    I have found that Splenda is very drying to baked goods and never really tastes as good. I have tried the product in other things also and finally gave up on Splenda as a sugar substitute. :(

    I think I might try this using fat-free sour cream or yogurt instead.... - 3/22/09

    Not sure these would have the same effect, please let me know if they work. :)
