Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake Without Eggs

This recipe is from Plain Chicken reader, Toni Reynolds. She commented on my Mayonnaise Brownies post that she had a great mayonnaise cake that her 91-year-old mother would make. She asked if I wanted the recipe. DUH! Of course, I wanted the recipe!! She was gracious enough to share it with me. She noted that even though they called the recipe Mayonnaise Cake, her Mom always used Miracle Whip in the cake. No problem! Miracle Whip Cake it is!

I was really excited to make this cake. I bought all the ingredients and whipped it up. I did a double-take because this cake doesn't have any additional eggs or oil. Only the eggs and oil in the Miracle Whip. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out. I shouldn't have worried because this cake was DELICIOUS! You need to make it ASAP!

How to Make Chocolate Miracle Whip Cake from Scratch

This Chocolate Miracle Whip Cake is super easy to make. Whisk together sugar, Miracle Whip, water, vanilla, flour, baking soda, and cocoa powder. Pour the mixture into a greased 9x13x2-inch baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes.

I topped this Chocolate Miracle Whip Cake with a quick homemade cream cheese frosting. OMG! It put this chocolatey cake over the top!!

Does Chocolate Miracle Whip Cake Need to be Refrigerated?

I like to refrigerate this Chocolate Miracle Whip Cake before serving so the frosting can set. I remove the cake from the refrigerator about 30 minutes to an hour before serving so it can come to room temperature. Store the leftover cake tightly covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator. If your kitchen isn't hot, you can store the cake on the counter overnight and it will be just fine.

This Chocolate Miracle Whip Cake will keep 4 or 5 days in the refrigerator or 2 to 3 days on the counter. You can even freeze leftovers for later. I like to cut slices and freeze the individual slices for later. Just take the cake out of the freezer and let it sit on the counter about 30 minutes before eating. Perfect for a quick afternoon pick-me-up!

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

This Chocolate Miracle Whip Cake was a HUGE hit at our house. We loved every single bite! I don't even like mayonnaise or Miracle Whip and I loved this cake! We topped the cake with some sliced strawberries. It is equally delicious with a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream.

A HUGE thank you to Toni for sharing her family recipe. This Chocolate Miracle Whip Cake is great for potlucks, cookouts, and the upcoming holidays. I can't wait to make this delicious cake again!
