My Birthday Cake

This is the birthday cake I made. I know it is an ugly little cake but it very very tasty.

The recipe for the cake is a chocolate mayonnaise cake. Before you go EWWWW think about what mayonnaise is: Eggs and oil. So it makes a moist cake. Also, it is a quick recipe. The frosting was an experiment. It tasted good but did not have the airy, fluffy quality I wanted.

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake


* 2 cups flour
* 1/2 cup cocoa
* 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup sugar
* 3/4 cup mayonnaise
* 1/2 cup strong cold coffee
* 1/2 cup milk
* 1 teaspoon vanilla

Sift together the flour, cocoa, soda and salt. Cream together the sugar, mayonnaise, coffee, milk and vanilla. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture; stir until well blended. Pour batter into greased and floured layer cake pans (or a 9- x 13-inch pan). Bake at 350°F. for about 25 minutes.
