    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.

    Hellmanns.com has a recipe for cupcakes. It looks pretty easy; cake mix, mayo, eggs and water.

    I used to have a recipe for chocolate cake with mayo in it. Very moist.

    basicly just replace the oil with mayo in any recipe.

    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.

    Frosting:

    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. [​IMG]
