Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake & Icing

This is one of my family’s favorite cake recipes. You could make it vegan by substituting vegan mayo and almond milk. I haven’t tried this so if you are adventurous and try it, let me know how it comes out!

Mix dry ingredients:
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 Tablespoons baking soda
4 Tablespoons baking cocoa

Add:

1 cup Miracle Whip – I know, the recipe says mayonnaise but we have always used Miracle Whip 🙂
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract

Pour into 9″ X 12″ greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Icing:
1 stick (1/2 cup) of margarine or butter
1 pound bag of powdered sugar
4 Tablespoons baking cocoa
1/3 cup buttermilk (I use regular milk)
1 teaspoon almond extract or vanilla extract

Melt butter/margarine, add cocoa and buttermilk/milk. Blend in almond or vanilla extract. This will be very gooey, pour over cake.
