How to make snowy white frosting and a mayonnaise chocolate cake

This is a mayonnaise chocolate cake that my whole family loves. I have made this recipe from the time the kids were little. The cake calls for nuts. When I made mine today, I didn't add nuts. Our son doesn't like them. I did put some on the frosting but only on a part of the cake. I sent the cake out to the barn.

This is a moist delicious cake. You do not taste the mayo in it.

The guys were in the barn today hunting. They have their deer blind in the barn. My granddaughter calls it their "man cave." They can keep warm and watch for deer, listen to the Packer game, and play cards there. Now I know many people don't like hunting, but that's what they do here.

The frosting makes lots. You can add it thick to the cake or there is enough for two cakes. You don't have to worry about cooling the frosting it will cool as you beat it and put it right on the cooled cake. I used all of the frosting on one cake.

When my husband came in the door he said I had frosting all over my face. Well, there was just no one in here to lick the beaters I had to.

This is an easy to make frosting.

This frosting is like 7-minute frosting but not made the same way much easier to make. With 7 minute frosting, a double boiler is used and you whip and whip it on the stove with a hand held mixer. Mine would never turn out right and it wasn't fun to do it over the stove.The mixer would get hot. Also, the 7-minute frosting has corn syrup.

Once you put the sugar, water and vinegar in the saucepan for this frosting, you don't have to touch until it hits the right temperature then remove it from the stove.

Do Not Use

Do not use low fat or olive oil mayonnaise. You can add whatever you want to the top of the cake. On the pictured piece of cake, I added chopped Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark. Anything looks good on it. It is so good.

This was my husband's favorite cake.

Meringue

Another easy frosting for cupcakes or cake is just Simple Egg White Frosting or Meringue

Ingredients

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/8 tsp cream of tarter per egg white
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar per egg white

Instructions

  1. Separate your eggs, and make sure there is no yolk in your egg whites. I do this by doing one egg at a time and adding them to the mixer as each egg white is yolk free. If yolk gets in your egg white do not use it. If the whites have yolk in them they may not foam.
  2. Place egg whites in the mixer add cream of tarter right away, beat on high.
  3. Beat until foamy lower your beating to slow and add sugar, beat on high until peaks form.

Now you're ready to frost your cakes.

How To Store Cake

Place the frosted cake into a covered container. Keep in a draft free location. Pop the lid a little to allow a slight amount of fresh air flow. About one inch. Large drafts will ruin the frosting. This frosting is better if you eat it within 24 hours.

        condominium, Yes the mayonnaise goes in the batter and makes the cake moist. You don't taste the mayonnaise just the chocolate.

        What taste does the mayonnaise give the cake? I was drawn to this hub because of the title "mayonnaise chocolate cake" I assumed you put it on the icing, but I read your recipe and you put it on the batter! Looks good from here. How is it?

        My mom used to make mayo cake when I was a kid. I wonder how it would come out if I used vegan mayo. I may have to experiment.

        These recipes look scrumptious! The frosting reminds me of a frosting one of my aunts used to make and everyone loved it. She was a great cook! I'm going to bookmark this hub because that frosting especially intrigues me.

        I remember when mayonnaise cakes were very popular. You just might be introducing this type of cake to some people who never heard of them. I'm not much of a frosting fan, but enjoyed reading how you make yours all the same. It made me smile when you wrote about licking the beaters. When we were kids, my mother always had 3 willing participants to do that job. Up votes and sharing. :)
