Mayonnaise Cake

Jul 28, 2014 -- 12:00pm


Mayonnaise Cake
1 1/2 cup moyonnaise (Best Foods is my preference & the only one I use.... ever!)
2 cups sugar
4 cups flour
2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup cocoa powder (Nestles Quik or Hersey powder)
2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups water
~ Simply mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
~ Pour in to 8x8 baking pan
~ Bake at 350 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean
~ Let cool & top with your favorite frosting. I like it with just powdered sugar sprinkled over the top &
   vanilla ice cream.
This was my first dessert I ate at my sister-in-laws house, when my husband took me to meet them.
Anyone who really knows me knows that I am NOT a chocolate lover! Yet this is one of the few
desserts made with chocolate that I really enjoy. It is a quick dessert to make. A perfect one to make
when you don't have any eggs. Also good for those late night "snacky" attacks.
