Oh, I know. I KNOW. The name. It has “mayonnaise” in the name. And mayonnaise is in the cake. Um. Yeah. I know. But please let me reassure you that it will change everything you think you know about mayonnaise. Yes, I feel you. I know that you use mayonnaise to make tuna salad or spread on slices of bread to make sandwiches. You use it to make deviled eggs and cook with it in 1,000 ways but plopping it into your dessert seems like the most unappetizing thing ever.
Do you trust me? I think you do. I always give you these amazing recipes. So trust me when I say you would never NEVER know that mayonnaise was an ingredient in this cake if someone made it for you. NEVER! Me, I personally cringed when I read “mayonnaise” in the name. But I thought for the greater good, I had to check it out. My fearlessness in using mayonnaise in a dessert paid off big time. What I got was a moist, chocolaty cake that did not taste like mayonnaise in the slightest. The brown sugar frosting was that extra bit of awesome on top that made me realize that I have to share this with the world.
