Quick to make chocolate cake, mayonnaise is substituted for the butter. Light and Tender and very good. The Creamy frosting is very creamy, very good I just love it. It's not too sweet. A white icing that looks like whipped cream.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. FOR THE CAKE: Preheat oven to 350°F Measure ingredients into mixing bowl in order given. Mix together well. Spread in greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake in oven for 30 minutes until an inserted wooden pick comes out clean.
  2. FOR THE FROSTING: Whisk milk into flour in small saucepan until smooth. Heat and stir until it boils and thickens. Cool thoroughly. I strain this mixture through a sieve just to make sure it is very smooth.
  3. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla in bowl until light, white and fluffy. Add cooled thickened milk. Beat until mixture resembles whipped cream.
  4. Makes enough to fill and frost 2 layer cake, about 3 1/2 cups.
