Share the Day Saturday- Chocolate Cake

Share the Day Saturday

Today's recipe is one shared by another Prez, you may remember her from this recipe, which she shared in the Lenten Series of Recipes last year. Anyway, what can I truly say about her, this odd compliment of the day probably says it best. You can enjoy more of these if you follow me on Pinterest.


Here is the beautiful cake she made using this recipe. Doesn't it look awesome!


3 c flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 c sugar
1/3 c cocoa
1 1/2 c water
1 1/2 c mayo
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

This is a heritage cake, it was common in the depression-era when milk and eggs were a luxury. Now we are trying to avoid them, go figure. You can find many versions of it floating around. To help this be vegan or more Lenten, substitute the mayonnaise or veganaise (eggless mayo). I used this as a base for another cake will be posting soon.
