29…. and holding

I celebrated my birthday on Friday – I love birthdays… well, for the most part.. next year’s birthday might hurt a smidge. LOL

What I love most about birthdays is that you get to eat cake and I LOVE CAKE!! My parents came to town for the weekend and my mom made my favorite type of cake – Mayonnaise Cake! I swear it’s the best chocolate cake EVER! Tastes nothing like mayonnaise – even the staunchest of mayonnaise haters will admit that this cake is pretty darn good (you just can’t tell them that it has mayonnaise in it before they try it!)

So, now that I’ve peaked your interest in this delicious cake, I will share the recipe:

Mayonnaise Cake

1 1/4 c sugar
1 c Miracle Whip (okay, so it’s not really mayonnaise, but USE Miracle Whip!)
1 tsp vanilla
2 c flour
6 T cocoa
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 pinch salt
1 c water

Cream sugar and Miracle Whip, add vanilla. Sift dry ingredients together and then add to sugar/MW mixture. Mix in water. Bake in greased and floured 9×13 pan for 30-40 minutes. (also makes a nice bunt cake, but you definitely have to bake it closer to 40 minutes.)

Yum Yum Yum!

  1. I LOVE cake too…but I’m not too sure about the Miracle Whip! Maybe I’ll give it a whirl…I don’t think I’ve tasted anything with chocolate that I don’t love.
