Chocolate/Strawberry Mayo Cake

Sena Wilson


This recipe is a very easy cake to prepare. It is moist and uses mayonnaise instead of eggs and oil. Chocolate and strawberries are a favored combination. It is rich in flavor and beautifully served with strawberries or strawberry sauce and ice cream. I often make this cake for a quick family dessert.

How to Make Chocolate/Strawberry Mayo Cake


  1. Combine flour, cocoa, sugar, soda and salt; mix well. Add strawberry nectar*, mayonnaise, and vanilla; stir until smooth.
  2. Pour batter into a greased and floured (or I use powdered sugar) 9" spring form pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes or until done but not overbaked. Cool.
  3. Remove sides of pan from cake. Sprinkle with powdered sugar using a strainer; serve with fresh, sweetened strawberries, or strawberry sauce and ice cream.
  4. Strawberry Sauce: In a food processor, blend one pint of quartered and hulled strawberries with 1/3 cup of sugar (more if needed for sweetness) until liquified. Store in refrigerator.

    Fresh strawberries: I add 1/4 to 1/2 (depending on sweetness of strawberries) cup of sugar to a pint of strawberries and marinate for a period of time to produce the juice for serving on the cake. For garnish, you can dip a few halves of strawberries in melted chocolate and place on wax paper to set chocolate.
  5. *I use Jumex Strawberry Nectar found in local food stores. You can substitute with strawberry juice or water.
