Chocolate Cake

Whipped Chocolate Icing

  • *Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. Set aside. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and baking soda together. Add milk, mayonnaise, and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. 
  3. Pour batter into prepared baking pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean. Remove cake and let cool.
  4. To prepare icing: Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat butter, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt together until smooth in large bowl. Add powdered sugar in two additions, beating until smooth each time, scraping sides as needed.
  5. Slowly beat in milk a tablespoon or two at time, until frosting reaches desired consistency. Frosting should be light and fluffy and easily spreadable.
  6. Frost cooled cake and serve. If icing is made with evaporated milk, cake can be stored on the counter at room temperature.

My mother made a chocolate mayonnaise cake when I was a child a long time ago. I have wished I had her recipe many times since she passed. I definitely am going to try this over the holidays. I can’t remember the last time I made a chocolate cake from scratch. Yummm!
