Moist And Delicious Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

As it was Father’s Day I thought I would bake a cake for that special someone. I rummaged around in my recipe box looking for the ideal delight.

In case you’re wondering what a recipe box is, that’s the old-school method where you actually wrote recipes on an index card and put them into a box.

What I found was years of memories of past holidays, special events, home cooked meals and a multitude of delectable goodies. I should rummage through it more often.

Under the Cookies and Cake tab, I found a recipe that I hadn’t made in years.

It’s called a┬áChocolate Mayonnaise Cake and I remember it being so moist and yummy.

One of the best things about the recipe is that it’s eggless, milkless and butterless but still tastes great.

  • One mixing bowl
  • One 8×8 inch pan
  • Five minutes to put it all together
  • 30 minutes to cook it.
  • Easier than a cake mix and way tastier.

Instructions
  1. Sift together all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add in the wet ingredients (water, mayonnaise and vanilla)
  3. Stir to mix all ingredients together but don't overmix. You can use a spoon for this part, no need for a blender or mixer.
  4. Grease and lightly flour a 8x8 inch cake pan
  5. Pour batter into pan and bake in a preheated oven 375 ┬░F for 30 minutes
  6. Test to see if cake is done by sticking a wooden toothpick into it and if it comes out clean it is done. If it comes out gooey, put the cake back in the oven for another 5 minutes.
  7. The cake will be firm and springy to the touch on top.
  8. Place cake pan on a rack to cool down and once it's cool enough to handle, turn the cake upside down on the rack taking it out of the pan. Let cake cool completely.
Butter Icing
  1. While the cake is cooling you can go ahead and make up the icing.
  2. For easy mixing and smoothness, sift together the icing sugar and cocao into a bowl.
  3. Add in soft butter and vanilla
  4. Adding milk a tablespoon at a time, mix the icing until it is creamy and smooth with a good consistency to spread on the cake
  5. Top with chopped nuts on top if desired
