This week I wanted to share with you all a recipe that has been in my family for years. Not only is it delicious, but it’s also my great grandfather’s favorite cake. This chocolate cake is so simple and it requires no eggs, butter or oil. The secret ingredient that makes this cake so simple and delicious is miracle whip…yeah you read that right. I know this may seem like a weird ingredient to add into a cake, but trust me it works.
The reason why mayo is used instead of more common ingredients like eggs or butter is because during World War II the ingredients that are now so common weren’t as readily available. The rationing required a little creativity and ingenuity which then created an amazing cake. Instead of doing a step by step with pictures, I wanted to really show the process of how this cake is made with a video. Check it out below and let me know what you think!
