Chocolate Mayonnaise Cupcakes

>> Sunday, September 19, 2010

The occasion is the birthday of a special friend. What could be more appropriate for a school teacher than cupcakes?! Not being particularly fond of cake, I have just a few favorite recipes in my possession. This one is my "go to" whenever I need traditional chocolate cake or cupcakes. Everyone seems to wince when I mention mayonnaise as one of the main ingredients, but tasting is believing. No dry, crumbly cake here. Just moist, yummy enjoyment!

OVEN: 350 degrees

1 1/2 cups sugar
3 cups flour
2/3 cup baking cocoa
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Pour into cupcake pans lined with muffin papers. Bake 20 minutes. Cool on rack. Top with your favorite icing ... peanut butter, mint, etc... YIELD: 2 dozen.

Or ... pour into greased 9x13" pan and bake 30 minutes.
