Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

No eggs? No margarine? No problem. Make a ‘chocolate mayonnaise cake’. You do need mayonnaise mind you (the clue is in the title).
Is this good for you? No but it’s fun and it definetely has a ‘feel good factor’

You need
10 oz self raising flour (yes, I know really old recipe with imperial measurements, go figure it out on the internet if you’re too young to know)
8 oz sugar
1 1/2 tsps baking powder
7 oz mayonnaise
4 tbsps cocoa
8 fluid oz boiling water
1 tsp vanilla essence

For icing: 2 tsp coffee
2 tsp cocoa
2 tbsp hot water ( I used more)
3oz marg (oops I said you didn’t needn’t need marg)
8oz icing sugar

Make a 7″ cake.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and mayo. Dissolve the cocoa in boiling water, gently stir into mix with vanilla essence till blended. Turn into greased tin (good idea to line it as well) bake at 180 degrees C for about 1 hr (ish). Cool before removing. For icing: dissolve coffee and cocoa in hot water, cream together with the marg and icing sugar and beat in cocoa liquid. Spread over top and sides. Lick bowl, feel delightfully self-indulgent. Clean up mess.
Share with friends. Forget about calories.
