Classic Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake for When You’re Out of Eggs

by 247tasty

Classic Chocolate Mayonaise Cake must be one of my most luxurious, delicious, and easy cake. Just combine all of the ingredients, pour into a pot, and bake, that’s it. Once you tried this recipe, you never will want to use a prepared cake mix. Mayonnaise is only an emulsion of yolk, oil, and a small amount of vinegar. Typical cake recipes call for egg, oil, and even buttermilk that contains vinegar and make the most incredible double chocolate cupcakes. Basically, with mayonnaise, multiple ingredients are only taken into one shortcut. The mayonnaise cake originated when people were less able to get eggs and oil during the Great Depression. Brands that have made Mayo have even added this recipe to the jar. You can see that there is 1/4 salt added in this recipe because the mayonnaise already contains salt.

This cake tastes wonderful warm but at room temperature, you can eat it. But we like our cake warm so the ice cream melts and soaking the fudge sauce to every nook and cranny. This cake is the perfect ending for a friendly dinner party. Nobody can resist a warm mayonnaise cake with fudge and ice cream, at least I can’t. Do not let you be frightened by the mayonnaise in a cake. In most cake recipes mayonnaise is mostly made from oils and eggs, making this cake damp and decadent.
