Growing up in the 70s, I remember many recipe and food trends. One was Mayonnaise Cake. Chocolate Mayonnaise cake was all the rage! Who knew you could make such a delicious and moist cake using mayo? Who would have thought that mayo and chocolate would have EVER gone together. Chocolate and peanut butter,yes………. but mayo?
I remember my mom and all her friends going on and on about this mayonnaise cake, similar to how they went on and on about all the different ways to cook with zucchini. Because there was no google, swapping recipes was what people did way back then. It wasn’t uncommon to have personalized recipe cards or to have a few recipe cards already filled out to share your latest and greatest.
