Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

My sister and I make the meal for our mom and dad every year on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. So this past Sunday was Father’s Day, and my dad asked for some of his favorite foods including his annual tradition of chocolate mayonnaise cake with peanut butter frosting for dessert. I have eaten this cake every year ever since I was a little girl! It is relatively easy to make and pretty fail-proof. The frosting is rather sweet, which is just fine with me! Try it and see if you like it!101_7672-2

Recipe for Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

Baking Time Required: 35 min. Preheat oven @ 350

Ingredients and Directions:

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 11/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 cup of salad dressing (like Miracle Whip)–This makes the cake moist, but you don’t taste the salad dressing once it is baked.
  • 1 cup of cold water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

    Greased and floured pan--I actually used cocoa instead of flour since it was a chocolate cake.

We like to frost this cake with Peanut Butter Frosting.

Recipe for Peanut Butter Frosting

Ingredients and Directions:

  • 3-31/2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup of milk (I probably used closer to 1/3 c. cup–but I also used 31/2 c. powdered sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Beat all ingredients together with a mixer until smooth. If too stiff, add more milk. Only add a tiny bit of milk at a time until you get yourdesired consistency.

I had leftover chocolate frosting so I "decorated" it a little.
