Easy Mayonnaise Cake Recipe for Beginners


Ever heard of a mayonnaise cake? It might sound weird at first, but trust me, it’s one of the tastiest cakes you can make! The secret ingredient, mayonnaise, makes the cake super moist and soft without tasting like mayo at all. If you’re 15 or just new to baking and want to whip up something yummy, this cake is a great start. It’s simple, straightforward, and downright delicious.

Recipe Details:

The mayonnaise cake is a unique but easy dessert that combines common ingredients in a not-so-common way. The mayonnaise replaces oil and eggs, which might seem odd, but it works wonders for the texture and moisture of the cake.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation Steps:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan or line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and baking soda together.
  3. Add the mayonnaise, water, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Stir everything together until you have a smooth batter.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Let the cake cool down before slicing. Enjoy!

Recipe Tips and Variations:

  • If you want your cake to be a bit richer, you can replace water with milk.
  • Add chocolate chips or nuts into the batter for an extra flavor.
  • For a fancier version, frost your cake with chocolate or vanilla frosting.
  • If you’re out of cocoa powder, make a vanilla mayonnaise cake by skipping the cocoa and adding an extra teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve your mayonnaise cake as is, or with a scoop of ice cream on the side. It’s also great with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee. This cake makes a perfect dessert for any occasion or a sweet treat just for you.
