Chocolate Cake


This recipe actually serves 12-16 depending on how much you are willing to share! The secret ingredient, as odd as it may sound, is mayonnaise. The mayo replaces the oil normally used in a cake recipe, which also makes it less fattening. It also makes the cake so moist and delicious.


  • Cake:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 cup water or milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/4 cup milk


Step 1

Cake: In a large bowl first, mix all of the dry ingredients together.

Step 2

Next add in the mayo, water or milk, and vanilla and mix well.

Step 3

Grease a 9x13 pan. Pour the batter in the pan and even it out. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. To check the cake to see if it is done, take a fork and poke it in the middle of the cake if it comes out clean the cake is done! Take the cake out of the oven and poke hole in the cake.

Step 4

Glaze: In a small to medium saucepan, melt the stick of butter on medium heat. While the butter is melting mix the sugar and cocoa powder together. When the butter is melted, add the milk, sugar and cocoa mixture. Stir to make sure everything is combined.

Step 5

Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. When it’s reached a rolling boil, time it for one minute, then remove from heat and pour the glaze over the cake.

Serve the cake warm with a large glass of ice cold milk!
