I love mayonnaise cakes so much that I thought I would share my recipe. I got it on the internet though, so someone else is sharing it too. Thanks….
Here goes…my easy recipe. (If I can make things anyone can.)
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (the boxed one)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla (I admit to just dumping a bit though.)
3/4 cup mayonnaise (I use Miracle Whip and I never measure this either. I just put three globs.)
I mix all those things in one bowl in that order. Don’t you just hate recipes that make you mix things separately and than mix them together. I never do that…LOL…maybe why I am a bad cook. Well, than you glop it all into a pan. I use an 8×8, but it probably would make a 9×13. I tend to eat to much dough. I know that turns out, the cooked product is always up in the air. You bake this at 350 for 35 minutes. Make sure a knife comes out clean though after you poke it.
I had to leave for my school bus run, so my cake didn’t get quite done, but I couldn’t wait and if I had left it in for two hours longer I surely would have had no cake left.
Ok…now for the frosting my favorite part.
I got this recipe from my neighbor. She made sure to tell me it is lite, which is good. I should start watching my figure and this is the type of light stuff I need.
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1 egg white
2 tbsp shortening
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp flour
Mix it together and there is enough to frost the cake above or any 9×13 for that matter. It is so good.
Well….now you can make my favorite cake.
Today was a good day. We stayed home all day except to drive bus in afternoon. I was the sub for the loudest bus of kids in the entire school district. There are 2 bus runs that the kids are even almost too loud for me and today they were pretty loud. It is like such a relief to get to the 3rd stop where like 10 kids got off. It seems like the bus becomes almost silent even though there is still like 40 kids on there.
Kyra even cried while the kids were loud and she stopped basically at the same time they were off. The one girl sat with her though and gave her the pacifier which made her settle. She will now take the pacifier, but spits it out within like a minute. She will take it though again if you give it to her. It is good for on the bus when a kid can give her it. I take some Gerber Graduate cracker things that the kids can give her too. She usually sleeps the whole ride though, but today she didn’t. She wasn’t really that fussy though. She cried for like a minute when the kids were really loud other than that she looked out the window and laughed. What a happy baby.
We got to see Kia, one of the other drivers babies. I don’t get to see very often. She is at like the back of the bus line and I just don’t get to see her much. She was born December 13th, so she is much littler than Kyra. She is smiling now though and gave me a huge smile. When I start my new bus run, I won’t ever get to see her unless I make special effort. I will be starting at the other school on the other side of the street.
I talked to one of my truck driving friends on the phone today. She was in Dallas close to where the wack that bought my camera lived. I told her she should go visit him for me. LOL…. I would never really have that done, but it was funny how close she really was. The guy is still persuing his refund. It is so so stupid, he could just sell the camera and be done with it. What a nut. Anyhoo…my friend is doing well. She was cooking her dinner when I called. She has one of those trucks that have the whole almost like a camper in them. There is an oven, microwave, etc. It even has running water, but she has to fill the tank. It holds something like 50 gallons though which is pretty good. She has it easy trucking that way. We didn’t have those things when we drove. We just had a bed and some drawers for clothes.
