Chocolate Cake with MAYONNAISE! (with ingredient list!)


Sorry, everyone…thanks for the kind note to include the ingredients!

Here it is:)



Nonstick vegetable oil spray

2¼ cups all-purpose flour

¾ cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder

1¾ teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon kosher salt

3 large eggs

1½ cups sugar

1¼ cups mayonnaise (not low-fat)

1 tablespoon vanilla extract


Three 8”-diameter cake pans


Preheat oven to 325°. Lightly coat cake pans with nonstick spray and line bottoms with parchment paper; spray again. Whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.

Using an electric mixer on high speed, beat eggs and sugar until pale and doubled in volume, about 4 minutes. Add mayonnaise and vanilla and beat until just combined. With mixer on low speed, add dry ingredients in 3 additions, alternating with 1â…“ cups lukewarm water in 2 additions, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Scrape batter into pans, dividing evenly.

Bake cakes, rotating halfway through, until a tester inserted into the centers comes out clean, 25–30 minutes. Transfer pans to wire racks and let cool 20 minutes before turning out onto racks. Let cool completely.
