We have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like chocolate cake. Especially one made from scratch, with a creamy homemade chocolate frosting! Today, Cook It would like to invite you on a journey of broadening your culinary horizons. Have you ever tried a mayonnaise chocolate cake? If not, you’re in for a treat.

To point out, mayonnaise chocolate cake is actually a blast from the past. The recipe dates back to the Great Depression when people had little to no access to eggs and cooking oil and had to be very resourceful. If you think about it, it makes perfect sense. After all, mayonnaise is basically oil and eggs, so you can’t taste any mayo-ness when you’re enjoying the cake. The staple ingredient merely helps to give the treat a perfect velvety texture and ultra-moist crumb, simultaneously keeping the sugar from overwhelming your taste buds. Does that sound intriguing or what?

Steps

1
Done

Prepare the Cake

Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Grease a 13- x 9-inch pan with shortening and sprinkle with flour.

2
Done

Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder in a bowl.

3
Done

Separately, cream together eggs, sugar, and vanilla with a mixer until very light brown, about 3 minutes. Add mayonnaise, and beat until incorporated. Add the flour mixture alternately with hot water, starting and finishing with the flour mixture. Beat at low speed until just blended after each addition.

4
Done

Transfer the batter into the pan. Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Let cool. Meanwhile, prepare the frosting.

5
Done

Prepare the Frosting

Combine cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract and beat until creamy.

6
Done

In a separate bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and cocoa. Gradually add to the butter mixture alternately with heavy cream. Beat at low speed until combined after each addition. Increase the speed to medium and beat until light and fluffy, about 1 minute.

7
Done

Cover the cake with the frosting.

Simple, fast, yummy. Check, check, check! If you crave a baked good of some sort, a mayonnaise chocolate cake is one of the easiest ways to have a tasty treat. Give this recipe a try, and see for yourself!

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
