Old Fashioned Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake
Mayonnaise in a cake? Yup, that's right. When you think about it, it all makes sense, since mayonnaise is full of eggs and oil right? This luscious and deliciously moist chocolate Mayonnaise Cake comes from my Grandma's old recipe ledger. It's so easy and the taste is out of this world! In my research for this post I also found similar recipes at Taste of Home and Hellman's.
Grandma was an amazing cook, raised on a farm, and had to provide hot and hearty meals to the farm hands every day for their noon dinner. I can only imagine what time she had to get up to make the meal, since we're talking early 1900's and no modern day appliances to ease the work!
Well fast forward to today and her recipes still live on.
This Old Fashioned Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake mixes up very quickly and the ingredients are right in your pantry. I think everyone has a jar of mayonnaise on hand.
I just love using a bundt pan for cake recipes, but this time I decided to use a 9X9 square pan and I'm glad I did! The cake rises beautifully, and because you grease and flour the pan, it will drop out quite nicely on an inverted cake plate.
The dark chocolate buttercream completes this rich and decadent cake. I think any Mom or Grandma would be happy to receive such a delightful sweet treat this Mother's Day!
