I know what you’re thinking. Mayonnaise?! In cake? But I promise, it really is fantastic. A couple months back, I asked my Nan to pass me this recipe. It wasn’t hers, it was my grandfather’s. I hadn’t eaten it since before he died, three years ago.

When I first made it after receiving the recipe, I had an epiphany. This is the reason that all other chocolate cakes I’ve tasted fall flat with me. This cake recipe defines chocolate cake for me. Maybe because it was the chocolate cake of my childhood, or maybe because the mayonnaise and coffee marry to bring out the flavor of the chocolate in fantastic and unexpected ways.

All I know is when I’m craving chocolate cake, this is the recipe I will make, forevermore.


P.S. A million thanks, credit, and love go to my dear East Coast Momma, Pam Anderson, for helping me alter the recipe to make a better cupcake.
