Moms Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

Moms Mayonnaise Cake

My Moms Mayonnaise Cake recipe is the best chocolate cake you will ever eat! Its so good you don’t even need to frost it! I have frosted it with every icing from mint to coffee and every kind in between.

I can’t remember my mom ever frosting this cake when we were kids. Next month will be 2 years since my mom passed away. I miss her very much and making these recipes of hers are always bittersweet. It always reminds me of her and that is marvelous but it also reminds me of how much I miss her.  She lived over 1100 miles away but was an important part of my kids life. Either on the phone or jumping on a plane to see at least a concert or special day! So this mothers day I will have my moms mayonnaise cake and reminisce with my kids about her!

Don’t let the fact that there is mayonnaise in there scare you away from this cake. Think about what mayo is; eggs and oil. That is basically all the mayonnaise is replacing in this recipe. There are no eggs or oil yet this cake will come out moist EVERY time. Mayo cake is marvelously moist!
