It was one of my good friends birthdays last week. Seeing as I don’t have a boyfriend to spoil at the moment, my friends get even more attention than they would normally.

The man wanted a chocolate mayonnaise cake with peanut butter frosting so that’s what he got! Of course I also made birthday cake shots and bought said individual a present of Crown Royal Maple. Spoiled I tell ya!

Check out the cake I made which turned out pretty good and I’ll also put the recipes below for you as well. If you are into cooking at all, you might want to check out our Taste of Home Cooking School coming to Binghamton University on October 29th. To get tickets, click here.

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

 

Ingredients

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

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the water, mayonnaise and vanilla until well blended. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa and baking soda; gradually beat into mayonnaise mixture until blended.
  2. Pour into greased 9-in. square or 11-in. x 7-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely.
  3. For frosting, in a small saucepan. Cook and stir brown sugar in butter until bubbly. Remove from the heat; stir in milk. Gradually add confectioners’ sugar; beat until smooth. Frost cake. Yield: 9-12 servings.

The cake came with specific directions for the frosting but since the birthday boy wanted peanut butter I looked that up separately. For the full recipe including the frosting click here.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons 2% milk

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and peanut butter until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Stir in the confectioners’ sugar, cocoa, salt and enough milk to achieve a spreading consistency. Yield: 1-2/3 cups.

Both of these recipes were Taste of Home recipes. My favorite part about the cake was the frosting because I’m not much of a chocolate person but I LOVE peanut butter! Enjoy!
