Does anyone have a recipe for cupcakes using mayo?Went to a get together last night and a lady made chocolate cupcakes with Hellmans mayo in them they were the best cupcakes I ever tasted. I asked her for the recipe and she said it was an old family recipe. Really didn't want to give it out. So please help.

I'm happy to share this recipe. It's a nice solid cake that isn't over sweet like some cakes

Chocolate Mayo Cake:

3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup Cocoa powder
2 1/4 t. Baking Powder
1 1/2 t. Baking Soda
1 1/2 Cup Mayo
1 1/2 cup water
1 1/2 t. vanilla

Blend all ingredients well, pour into greased and floured cake pans. Bake on 350 oven for 30 minutes.


1/4 cup Crisco
1/2 Cup Cocoa
1/4 t. Salt
1/3 Cup Milk
1 1/2 t. Vanilla
3 1/2 Powdered sugar.

I add two teaspoons or orange zest for a chocolate orange frosting.

after cake is frosted, I chill mine for a few hours, this cake is wonderful cold with a scoop of ice cream.

yep. but they are really REALLY moist and may require extra baking time. keep your eye on them and test with a toothpick.

the Duke's recipe is the BOMB.

it is oh so delish. you won't be keeping any leftovers. in fact, make a double batch. it's the only smart way to do it.
