Good morning all! Well, we've made it to Friday ~ FINALLY!!!! In light of the tough week I've had, I've decided I need something chocolate this weekend. I have this wonderful recipe for a chocolate cake made with mayonnaise! I know, I know, doesn't really sound all that appetizing, does it? Well, let me just tell ya, this is one of the most moist, delicious cakes I've ever put into my mouth! Give it a try ~ you won't believe how good it is!
Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup boiling water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. baking soda
Combine all ingredients and pour into 13 X 9 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
How simple is that?? For frosting, I just use whatever canned frosting I have on hand. Homemade frosting is good too! You can dress this up with sprinkles or other candies to match whatever theme you want. This is soooo good, but a word of warning, if you want your teenager to eat it, don't tell him or her that there is mayo in it! My son ate the heck out of this until I told him about the mayo. Then he wouldn't touch it! Oh well, that just meant more cake for me!! I'm linking this to Colleen's Recipe Swap over at And Baby Makes Five. Click here to check out all the wonderful recipes!
We are in the grip of another severe winter storm today. The wind is howling and snow is blowing everywhere! We are actually under blizzard conditions, or so the weatherman says. It looks like another weekend cooped up here at home. The kid is off this morning on a school trip to Richmond to compete in a scholastic bowl state competition. He is a math whiz and I am so proud of him! I worry for their travel safety in this weather but I just have to trust in God to keep him safe. They will be back late Saturday night or early Sunday morning. If you have any extra prayers, please throw them his way.
Well, that's about all I have for today. Gotta get off here and get ready for work. I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday!
Until next time. . .
