Mayo Cake

I had to make some baked goodies for the girls’ school festival this weekend, and true to my “lazy” ways, I decided I wanted to mix up a cake and use my  mini bundt pans.  I mean, why make TWO cakes when you can make SIX, right?!

If you know me, you know I’m not much for pre-made mixes.  I like to whip up a cake from scratch – really, though, what I like is that I can use ingredients I already have to make a delectable treat!  Not to mention that we live so far from town that buying cake mixes has to be a planned activity … and I’m just not so good at planning anything these days! 

So, I went on a hunt in my cookbooks for something simple yet fulfilling.  Boy-oh-boy, I think I hit on a gold mine!

Here’s the recipe I used – SIX ingredients:

  1. 2 c. flour
  2. 1 c. cocoa
  3. 1 c. sugar
  4. 2 teaspoons baking soda

Sift those ingredients together.  Then add:

  1. 1 c. water
  2. 1 c. mayonnaise

Stir until well blended and smoothe.  Bake at 375 for about 20 min. in the bundt pans, 25 min. in 9 x 13 pan or 35-45 min. in loaf pan.

Once done, popped out of the bundt pan and cooled, I sprinkled them with powdered sugar and wrapped in colorful plastic wrap!

Share and Enjoy!
