From dates to diapers contest is asking what our favorite cake was growing up. Our family has a traditional "Salad dressing cake" that is a huge hit every birthday. It is a Chocolate chip Chocolate cake...and it is amazingly yummy! The mayo is what makes it so moist. I will try to post the recipe on here later because I think everyone should at least give it a "scout size" taste (see post about Mean Mom). What your favorite birthday cake? Is it a traditional cake, or would you rather have a pie or cobbler? Inquiring minds would like to know! Go over to her contest and check it out! Wish her twins Happy Birthday, too!
Here is the recipe:
2 c. flour 5 tbsp. cocoa
1 1/4 c. sugar 1 c. salad dressing (miracle whip)
1 tsp. soda 1 c. hot water
2 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. vanilla
Sift dry ingredients. Add salad dressing, hot water and vanilla. Do not over beat. Bake in a moderate oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Topping: Sprinkle chocolate chips over cake before baking, or make Brown Sugar Frosting. Our family likes the cake sprinkled with chocolate chips.
Brown Sugar Frosting:
2 tbsp. butter 6 tbsp. milk or cream
2/3 c. brown sugar 1 c. powdered sugar
Melt butter and add brown sugar. Add milk and boil 1 minute. Add powdered sugar until is spreads nicely and cover cake.
