Mayonnaise Cake

Tammy Wright


When I heard of this I thought yuk! but, I have to say this was one of the best cakes I've ever ate. I tried it at a friends house. I asked her where she got this she said her mother gave it to her years ago. I couldn't believe it was a mayonnaise cake. Don't let the name fool you, you have to try it. Even my little picky eatter loves it. It's his favorite cake.
